hello. again.
i've been diagnosed , by RMI , having a herniation of L5S1.its been 4 weeks already. 1st week was hell of pain.then it started to be reduced pain.though i can not sit .but i can walk with bearable pain.and when i lay on my back.i have no pain.
i m swimming backstrokes everyday.with few aqua exercises.thats what Drs asked me. to go through the same for another 3 weeks.
my question is. i cant feel any progress for a while....do you think is tht ok?
does it just take time? to heal? and is it normal to be without any progress for 2 weeks? like same thing as i mentioned above?.plz help.
any comment would be appreciated.


  • It does just take time. The average figure I've heard quoted is 6 weeks. I wouldn't be too worried yet. My mother had a pinched nerve with severe symptoms and recovered completely in about this time frame. It doesn't always heal, but stay positive. There's no reason to think that you won't be one of the lucky ones for whom that does happen.

    Thanks for the reply.
    i am so positive about it especially after the surgery wasnt an option for any of the Drs.
    i hope it will be all right.
    Thanks again.
