Hello My name is Del and in early March of 2016 I had emergency surgery to repair a ruptured disc between my L4 & L5, the rupture had protruded so far out it rubbed off the protective coating on the nerve running down my right leg. My doctor sad the back healed quickly and nicely and I was sent back to work after 5 week with limited duty and 25 lbs lift capacity for 3 months and the 50lbs lift capacity to date. But the one thing that has not stopped and has possibly even gotten worse is the tingling and the numbing pain that shoots down my leg when I walk or stand for more than 10 minutes. My general practice doctor put me on a medication called Gabapentin 300mg once in the morning and once at night to try and help the nerve heal faster, to no avail. Please any recommendations would be greatly appreciated as this is affecting all aspects of my life, and at least for now my wife is being a loving and patient woman. But among other things I can't even simply for a 1 mile walk with my wife.
