I'm new to this chat. Looking for a little insight. I have had a large l5-s1 disc protrusion for about 6 weeks now and feel like I am failing as a mom. I am in excruciating pain, I can't even be left home alone with my one and a half year old due to the fact that I am pretty much confined to the floor laying on my back. It's so terrible. I am a teacher and am off work and have been the whole time. Here are my questions:
I have terrible sciatic pain that shoots all the way down to my ankle. When will this go away?! The more I research (on google of course) it says that in most cases the pain subsides within 6 weeks. I don't even feel 1% better than I did 6 weeks ago. How long did it take you to have a decrease in pain?
I am trying physiotherapy but can't do any of the exercises due to sharp shooting pain. I have been told
To wait and see. I am just wondering if anyone can give me
Some personal experiences with the same thing.
