I am suffering from Herniated Disc, Disk Prolapse at L4-L5, L5-S1. Stenosis, Lumbar spondylosis and disk bulge with cauda equine syndrome (I know it is clinical emergency)
It has been 5 months and Physio Therapy did not helped. The sharp shooting pain is travelling from my left buttock to knee. I can’t move. Also tried TENS from Physio Therapist.
I am 29 Y M and weight 110 kgs (242 lbs). The pain is very bad and its just like a knife stabbing me. I can’t turn towards my left while sleeping and currently sleeping on my right side for 5 months now. Hot fermentation and meds are of no help at all.
Should I go for microdiscectomy? Is there any chance that I will be paralyzed? Do I have to go through another surgery in the future if I do not change my lifestyle? Please advice what to do if I go through the surgery.
Please advice. Is there anything else I can try? I am really afraid of surgery and I've 2 small kids.
