I've just joined this site so not sure if I'm posting this in the right place.
I've just been diagnosed with a large central disc protrusion, associated with compression of the thecal sac and S1 nerve root. I was notified by letter about the condition so only really know what I've been able to find on line. The condition is causing numbness in the back of my thigh and back/foot/leg pain. I've been referred to neurology for management (not sure what this will involve) but won't get an appointment for 4 - 6 weeks.
Anyway, my question is...what sort of exercise is still safe? I have an exercise bike and seem to remember reading this isn't good for my condition. Can anyone help or offer advice? Also wondering what to expect with this condition and if it will get better.
