I have prolapsed disc l5s1 with radiculopathy and left lumbar sprain, just under two weeks till spinal fusion surgery. I also had problems with urinating, had retention ( wouldn't go all day then realized that's why i had a sore stomach),had bowel,bladder repair 4 years sgo.i injured my back over 10 years ago,was severe,crawling around etc but then it improved as inflammation went down, went to chiro. Which made it worse being disc injury,didn't take anti inflam. Tabs(big mistake),bout yr ago lost feeling in legs and pain was extreme, i have been walking few kms few times a week and my back feels alot better
There is still pain lower back pelvis and my right ankle,behind knee and calf pulls often,i am not sure whether the risks of surgery and post surgery degeneration outweigh the benefits of possible pain reduction?
