I have a prolapse disc (L5/S1) which is causing me extreme pain in my right leg. I have had two injections so far, the first worked really well and I was pain free for about 15 months. The second did not work so my consultant has suggested surgery and I am booked in for a microdiscectomy in two weeks time. In the mean time I am really struggling to walk, sit, sleep. He has given me gabapentin which I am building up slowly. I'm in so much pain and I'm not sure how I will get through the next few weeks before my surgery. Any advice would be welcome.
