Sciatic Pain, Relief, Surgery, Options?
I have been dealing with Sciatic problems for a year now. I was diagnosed on January 1st and have been in some kind of Therapy since January 4th of this year. I started out with Physical Therapy and then in March I stopped that and started doing Spinal Decompressions Therapy on a million dollar computerized bed three days a week. That has made a tremendous improvement as i am no longer in constant pain but i am getting very discourged and depressed. I sit at a desk all day so it does not bother me much but if i walk more than 20 paces here comes the pain in my lower leg. my social life is non exsistant and my husband is so supportive and my angel. i am thinking about throwing in the towel and just having the back surgery. i just want my life to go back to normal like it was before. i was a very active person outdoors. can anyone comment or give advice on deciding to have the surgery?
any input would be greatly appreciated! thankyou =)
