I suffered a bulging disc about 3 years ago, it tok me two years to finally get an MRI Scan here due to our health system which showed a very small localised bulge which has been pressing on the leg nerve. Although the pain is by no means debilitating, after 3 years of back pain, a pulsating/ twitching calf muscle on my right leg and an avoidance odf almost anything that involves sitting down, i have been reading up on the surgery to remove part of the disc that is pressing against the leg nerve. But i have read that the longer you leave it, the less likely a positive outcome. Is it likely after 3 years that the nerve is simply damaged and will never heal, and these leg twitches and cramps i would continue to experience even after surgery.? I have tried severla physiotherapists and chiropractors and none have made any improvement at all, in fact some made it worse. I simply feel that as a 37 year old, i am avoiding things and thinking like a 67 year old and its very upsetting. Any advice.?
