I've been suffering from a prolapsed disc for around 7 to 8 months now. Its getting to the point now where I dont know what to do. I have had my MRI done and it showed L5 S1 of the prolapsed disc and about a month ago I had a ct guided epidural that did not work, I actually feel a lot worse than before. I got a letter from my Neruro surgeon suggesting surgery if I didn't get better but I'm still yet to see him.
I am 26 years old, have a full time job which I am struggling with. I want to know what else I can do before I see the specialst again. Physio was a waste of time for me I went for about three months... I want to exercise more than anything because I was into it before the prolapse, but im just too sore and too scared to start anything physical like that incase I make myself worse. I cant walk or stand for more than 5 - 10 minutes, sitting for prolonged periods is a struggle.. so yeah. Hoping to get some advice because noone around me understands enough to help.
Thanks in advance
