Hi, I'm Dave, I've been viewing the forum for quite a while now after blowing my L5 S1 disc in March 2015. This squashed the nerves to my left leg making it very difficult to do basic things such as walking and standing upright. For the last couple of months prior to surgery I was, in effect, housebound. Had surgery 2 weeks ago (discectomy) so we'll see how it goes from here.

If I can help or advise anyone who is suffering from a similar thing, please feel free to contact me and I'll do my best to help you.
