i am a 49year old female.about 16-17 years ago i complained of a pain as i thought starting in my hip. the sensation was similar to going over on your ankle. pain lasting approx 20 minutes or so accompanied by limping which lasted about the same length of time. it happened quite frequently and was worring as there was no warning.anyhow i was refered to neurology and the doctor concluded that i had a strange story.much to my annoyance and frustration. yes i could do all the text book exercises and returned to work with this happening again and again.over the years and three heart attacks later i still had the pain only it came more often and stayed longer. iseemed to have it more around the same time as a monthly period so i thought maybe a gynae problem. after my daughter died 4 years ago i returned to work mainly to keep my sanity but had to undergo another heart surgery then went back to work.this time menopause took over and the hip and leg pain has never left me its like watching evolution begin every morning then i work full-time and limp around work its that bad i am even imitated by other staff around the store.so after all these years of going to hospital and constant complaints to my g.p that something was not right i get an m.r.i scan that shows ihave a very large prolapsed disc at the base of my spine and that my only option is surgery or eventually lose the power of my legs.easy answer-not really what about my heart problems- last surgery 2 yrs ago. what is the success rate of such an operation. i live on my own. i have neck problems my c5,6,7 discs in my neck were damaged receiving cardiac arrest in 1994. i think the only thing i have left is a sense of humour.
