Hi all, I am currently suffering with L4/L5 prolapse disks on the left and right side, I am also suffering with sciatica which is causing me terrible discomfort. I have had 2 epidurals and a nerve root block and nothing has worked. My doctor has decided not to operate as his words to me was that there would be 50/50 chance of either the pain getting worse or unable to walk. I am 31 years old, I have had to finish my job as I was in to much pain. I am now stuck and don't know where to go , I am severely depressed and need help can anyone help please .
