I have suffered with excruciating pain,numbness and pins and needles down my left leg for over a year and have just been told by the nuro-sugeon i have a prolapsed disc (lower lumber). He has not offered any treatment only an operation (alumber decompression) for which im booked in for 7 August. Im petrified of this going wrong,apparently there is a risk of being left incontinent,or of having a 'foot drop'. Has anyone ever had this op? how was it for you? Im only 34 and feel i have to have the op as otherwise the disc will rupture and i would then be left incontinent almost certainly. Also there is no way i can live with the pain any longer. any info would be much appreciated.
