Hello forum folks. I would like to thank all the people that have responded to the questions which have been extremely helpful in guiding those in need of medical advice. I am a 29 year old male that has a herniated disc at the L-5 S-1 level disc prostusion with radicupathy. I have sciatica i can barely sit and stand for longer than 2 hours max.Tingling pins and needles numbness, twitching of the back, weakness in the foot. Pain in the back is severe that i need norco in the middle of the night to finish my sleeptimel. I have read most of the post in this site however you guys have had your surgery before two years. I am fighting with workmans comp and one doctor says that i shouldnt have surgery because he was in a similar situation and it didnt work for him. I have basically gone bankrupt since my injury and near homeless. I would like to have a microdiscectomy because the drs. dont know about the pain that i endure and they arent the ones that are going to be broke. Anyone that has a microdiscectomy after 2 years please give me some knowledge and input on post surgery and what you think you should do in my shoes. THanks Everyone for your Support..
