Hi, I posted this on the Sciatica forum but no one replied so thought I would give this one a go! So for about a year I have had Sciatica...was shrugged off my Doctor's etc until 1 took me seriously and she referred me to an orthopaedic who sent me for an MRI and physio (which didnt work) anyway I got my results back about a month and a half ago! and I have a bulging disc at L5 which is pretty big and also a smaller bulge at S1...I think...all I know is that I have 2 bulging discs and that one is better than the other! Anyway he gave me the option to either have injections...which he said could only last for a couple of days or surgery to sort this out once and for all, as I am so young! At the time I did not know what I wanted to do as it was a shock and I have now settled on wanting the operation, as the pain I am in is just so unbearable! I am 20 years old but I feel about 90!!! Anyway is there anyone else in my situation...or anyone who can give me some advice please? Thank you [smile] x
