L4-L5-S1 are degenritive

Started by Ken Fricke on 12/10/2014 6:08pm

if you keep putting surgery off can you damage a lot of nerves going to your leg and arms. I lost my job back in April before I could get surgery done that's I ask about this cant hardly walk the legs are like rubber that don't want to support the weight of your body.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Yes you can damage the sciatica nerve if you put off the surgery for to long. I have had 4 back surgeries and it is my own fault because once I felt good again I went right back to heavy lifting. The first 3 surgeries were done in the U.S. But this last one I had done in Canada because I moved here and it took almost 3 years to get in for the surgery and in that time my sciatica nerve was being pinched and now that I had the surgery the sciatica still hurts just as bad as before. The sciatica is joined with other nerves and if the sciatica is damaged it will effect other nerves.

My MRI came back today and my L4 L5 are bulged and my L7 is worse.
Is that bad?
