Bone on Bone in L4 and L5 lower spine...can't lift or bend and hurts most of the time. * taking lots of Ibuprofen * afraid of fusion operation making things worse * Injured my back in 20's by lifting heavy object. In early 60's now. * Going to get an inversion table and inflatable belt. Already wear a back brace belt when standing any length of time. * Find some relief with sitting or lying down * Use ice packs often * Massage helps some * Got a 4K cold laser three weeks ago. Seems to help with other ailments, but the bone on bone spine...not sure of. I heard horror stories of the laser surgery operations and some fusion operations. Need some hope and direction. ANY IDEAS WILL BE HOPEFUL...Thanks, D.
