Morning everyone

Im 48 had back trouble since 1988 (when i was in my 20s) had an accident at work, had sciatica either leg, aching muscles from the waist down ever since, but over the last 2 years things have kicked off big time, i have put a post in (SCIATIA, LEG PAIN, RADICULOPATHY), and hope someone can put some light on my issues,

I was under the impression that after surgery, all was ok and you could go back building work, some of what i have read on here tells me this may not be the case?

Have a good day everyone feel free if you want to e-mail

  • First and foremost, have you seen a surgeon who specializes in spinal issues? Have you had a recent MRI? There is no guarantee to be pain free after spinal surgery and it is a very long recovery.

    Best wishes,

  • hi and welcome to the forum! :H we are here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. i do hope you find some help and assistance soon. :D you do need a good set of pictures and to see a good doctor. a pain management doctor might be able to steer you away from surgery and give you some other ideas for conservative treatment. =D> good luck! Jenny :)
