Gastric Sleeve and Disc Herniation



Recommended Posts

I had gastric sleeve surgery about 3years ago. Since then I have been having boughts of back pain in my lower back. They did MRIS and found two disc issue in the lower lumbar disc. I had some pain (cortisone) injections but still have this pain. Could this be due to the gastric sleeve as it was a revision or a disc bulge issue?

I get the injections also and it does nothing for my pain. I have really bad leg pain from it that makes me limp the injections do help with that. It has nothing to do with the sleeve though

You may have had degeneration before and didn’t know it and now it’s more noticeable since losing weight. I too have degeneration but mine is hereditary, been dealing with it since I was 26 and I’m now 45. I’ve had 4 back surgeries and next step for me is a fusion because 2 of mine are bone on bone. If you can avoid surgery please do. I found aquatic therapy worked best for me with the pain.
