I am new to this kind of thing?
I live in the UK,I have 2 herniated discs (L5 /S1 annular tear etc)in 2000 which resulted in countless physio etc plus a laminotomy, all was ok usual pain etc but maneageable had to change my life accordingly, 2006 another 2 epidurals that didn't work last resort laminotomy, again all ok for a short while until childbirth, had a c-section and since then (18 months ago) have had on and off problems to the point of not able to walk usual stuff, also doped up the eye balls,further epidural for pain has not helped...cut a long story short i visited an Orthopaedic Surgeon last week who asked"why are you here, you know there is not much that can be done but pilates?" Having a 2nd opinion on Friday (paying privately to see a Neuro Surgeon)
I think the reason i am writing in this forum is to ask if anyone else has this issue/problem, and is there anything that can be done? I am 35 and was told by the Ortho' last week that this is to be expected of women my age after childbirth who have this issue with their backs??? I have a very active beautiful 18 month old Daughter who i want to play with and take on days out!
Anyway i feel as though i am moaning which was not my intention.
Hope to hear from someone soon
