Can anyone help me work this out?
I had microdiscectomy L5S1 May 08 and have not recovered well enough. I still cannot lift my back off the floor if i am lying on my back (arch it), I cannot lie on my stomach.
Surely this is unnacceptable.
Physio says my left psoas is locked on and my right isn't firing.
Chiro says my pelvis on the left is twisted inwards.
Physio says the loss of disc height is causing facet joints to lock up???? How do I unlock it?????
I am on valium for the back spasms, which are probably doing something but obviously not alot.
My sleeping at night is getting worse again, i am tossing and turning in pain.
I am at my wits end. Is this a permanent result of surgery?
I have had 2 lots of facet joint injections around the area which bring relief for a week, so they think it is only just bringing physical relief by separating the facet joints/
Do you have any ideas????
I also am getting hip bursitis which doesn't help me walk either.
Thanks for any help you have
