    I am so sorry for what you are going through right now. i know, it can be real hell. I had a terrible disc prolapse and i did all possible things to avoid the operation. i realized it was only temporaly and the pain would come back. I had two nerve blocks in January 2015, Radio frequency was done in March and in May i decided enough of the pain was enough, and i had the operation done. Although my left legg is a little numb, the pain is gone and i am back to work. I thank God i no longer have the pains. Just try that, and know everything we do, its by Faith and God takes over. I do wish you all the best. God bless.
