I am scheduled for a Lumbar Laminectomy on 11/10 after I postponed the first date because i felt well. that was only short lived and I am more pain than before. I am unable to walk at about a 2 minute mark before my scaitica has me cringing in pain. It's getting hard to get up every day for work and talk about hip pain.
Is your scaitica 24/7? Mine is interesting to say because the only time I get the excrutiating pain is when I walk. If i lay down on sit I am ok just leg throbbing.
I hope I am making the right desicion but I have tried the epidural, chiro, pt, accu, mexican massagers. I need to try to get my life back and I know it will be a miss or hit.
All my prayers are going out to everyone one of you so we can soon fine some kind of pain relief.
