Sciatica caused by L5/S1 herniation, doctor wary on surgery.



  • I had the same issue as you although my pain was unbearable whenever I needed to stand or walk. Close to a 10/10. I am 22 and a university student. I lived with the pain for 8 long months too. Did the round of injections and physical therapy and nothing really worked. I got fed up and booked the microdiscectomy. Nearly 8 weeks post op and I feel virtually zero pain. Been this way since I woke op from surgery. Slight nerve twinges here and there but they are normal. I am already back to a normal life. Best of luck.
