i'm new to this chat. looking for a little insight. i have had a large l5-s1 disc protrusion for about 6 weeks now and feel like i am failing as a mom. i am in excruciating pain, i can't even be left home alone with my one and a half year old due to the fact that i am pretty much confined to the floor laying on my back. it's so terrible. i am a teacher and am off work and have been the whole time. here are my questions:
i have terrible sciatic pain that shoots all the way down to my ankle. when will this go away?! the more i research (on google of course) it says that in most cases the pain subsides within 6 weeks. i don't even feel 1% better than i did 6 weeks ago. how long did it take you to have a decrease in pain?
i am trying physiotherapy but can't do any of the exercises due to sharp shooting pain. i have been told
to wait and see. i am just wondering if anyone can give me
some personal experiences with the same thing.
