I have had low back pain on and off for many years but since oct 2008 i got a serious bout of pain that did not get better. After suffering terrible pain with sciatica in my right leg and various types of pain relief some very strong nothing really helped so had mri scan beginning april to find i have quite big prolapse on bottom disc and it is bulging more from middle so pressing on my nerve so the doctor is sending me to neurosurgeon in june!! to see consultant as gp and physio think i need the operation you have all mentioned. Ihave had 8 weeks of physio that has not really helped at all. What worries me is i now am getting pains all the way down both legs not sciatic pain-more like restless horrible pain and obviously worse when i stand which all my weight is then pressing down. Has anybody else had symptoms like that ? I have read that people having numbness in there leg where pain was but my pain is all the way down especially my right leg and i dont want that numb. Also i worried about the op as it in a very delicate place and also recovery as i have a 3 year old to look after,and time in hospital and length of op? If anyone would like to reply back then i would be very grateful.
