Help, new member with sciatica
Hello, I'm a male 63 with never any back problems. I'm active and walk every other day, 6 foot /240lbs. I retired a few years ago and own a forum website so I'm in my desk chair 10 hours a day. Two weeks ago, I got up out of the chair to meet with SEARING pain down right leg and inability to walk. Next day my ortho of 10 years saw me and felt it was a pinched nerve. So he ordered an MRI and here was the summation:
So next, I have an epidural this thurs and rehab sched after that.
I trust my doc but he was a bit short with me:
Only one main question. In two weeks it really has not got any better with heat, ice and oral cortazone....I still can't walk without a huge charley horse pain after. 30 yards or so....
1. Will this ever heal, or will the epidural and therapy just get it to a manageable state?
Thanks in advance
