I have had lower back pain of some sort or another for the last 14 years. My condition seems to get worse every year. This year I started getting numbness and pain in my left leg that was so bad that I couldn't sleep.
I had an MRI that showed a disc Protrusion between the L4 and L5. I have done 4 months of PT and three epidural shots. The pain in the leg is gone, but the lower back pain is as bad as ever. I live an active lifestyle and I am not ready to slow down. Would a discectomy let me return to a life of Skateboarding, wrestling, and other high impact sports?
Any Help is Appreciated!
