Well, its been awhile now and my pain is steadily about the same. 1-3 without drugs and about 1 with. My sciatica pain has pretty much vanished. I do still have ocassional light pain outside my right calf area and some discomfort in my right hip. My lower back is a little tight too.
I am able to walk on my heels again, which I havent been able to do in months.
I was considering surgery but now i'm not so sure. Since i'm improving (slowly) I was wondering if i'd continue to do so?? Or if it is possible I will heal on my own.
What was once severe 7-9 pain to where i struggled to walk has gone down to almost nothing. I have no clue why. I have been stretching every day and babying my back. Right now i'm going on about 48 hours of no pain meds and the pain is about a 2, though i just woke up. The pain is always at its peak when i just wake.
Again, i can walk on my toes and my heels. No movement makes the pain worse. Any thoughts?
