Hiya. So glad I came across this Forum. Have suffered with back problems since I was about 16. First a prolapsed disc, which lasted quite a while and was rather painful for someone so young. Fast forward many years and one morning I woke in AGONY, not able to move either leg, spent full month in the upper part of house, couldn't do stairs, in fact could do very little, including making it the few steps to the toilet so a bucket was used in the bedroom, very undignified I have to say. Physio and chiropractor attended, MRI done and showed bulging disc pressing on several nerves. Now nearly 2 years later I have just had a spinal disectomy and one week into recovery really wonder why I bothered. In total agony again but hoping it early days.
