i've had an MRI showing a herniated/bulging disc in L5S1.
sciatica pain moving from buttock/leg/foot. not back pain though.just stiffness.
i was just wondering.
When do i have to give up . knowing i should go through a surgery.
i mean. whats the reasonable time i should bear and try pills/injections/exercises//etc...
until i know this needs to go through a surgery ,
this all started 20 days ago. 10 days was on pills and painkillers.until i started to get a bit better.then.
i ve had an epidural injection. 10days ago. i dont think it helped a lot though.
but now,i can walk as much as i want. and pain is bearable.i just cant sit .
sometimes i reach a point where theres no pain.and sometimes all goes back.
im not on meds and pills anymore.im doing some aqua exercises.and the pain is so bearable already.
but the question.when will i have to consider doing a surgery. before its too late.cos i dont want to be left with a nerve damage.
