I'm new to the forum so excuse me if this has been asked before! I had microdiscectomy L5/S1 two years ago and still have lower back pain and sciatica. I can't lie on my front or back for more than 30 minutes without pain. I always sleep on my side but I often roll on to my back and wake up in pain feeling "stuck" - like I can't move. I have to wake my partner up to help me roll over and the pain is terrible.
I've tried putting pillows etc behind me stop this happening but this doesn't seem to work. Anyone have anything similar and have any advice?
