scheduled Discectomy in 2 weeks
I have had sciatica off and on for 3 years. The cause is a herniated disc. The last bout was severe and I was out of work for 4 weeks. I had 2 different MRI's and an Xray that confirmed the diagnosis. I have surgery scheduled for 12-16-14. Here is the issue. As in the past the Sciatica has, for the most part, gotten better on its own. I feel pretty good when on my pain meds. I experimented by not taking my pain meds and there still is mild pain. My question is can they still do the surgery if I am no longer in severe pain?
