Hello, this is my first posting. I am from the UK and stumbled across this site so hope you can help me.
I have had sciatica on and off for about 18 months. an MRI showed a disc bulge and I am now due to have the disc trimmed. It it has taken so long for the surgery to come around that I am no longer in pain. I want the surgery because I know it will reoccur at some point. My question is whether there is still a bulge if I am not in pain and will the surgeon therefore be able to do anything when he operates, will there be anything to trim off?
