I opened a heavy window at work in April this year 2014 (twice in a matter of a few days) I've had 11 sessions of physio to which this didn't respond to. I've had horrendous pain over the months and now had a scan to show a prolapse disk. On Thurs 27 November I had an epidural injection which doen't seem to have made any difference and I am currently off work this is my 5th week off. Prior to this had four weeks off intermittently. I am due to see the Neurosurgeon again on 17 Dec to discuss surgery that he said he can offer me. I keep as active as possible but to walk sometimes if really painful and I can't work with this. This has gone on for so long, any advice on how to treat this? Should this have gone off for this long? The L5 S1 disk is prolapsed. Any comments of advice welcome....Thank you
