My Experience with Sciatica Pain

I have been having what I thought was hip pain for the last 6 or 7 years. Finally, after taking every Arthritic pill and muscle relaxant on the market, I told my M.D. I had gone as far as I could and I needed help.

She sent me to a neurosurgeon and he found I had a bone problem in my back. He did a laminectomy and I was told there may be nerve damage and it would take a while for it to show up.

Now 3 years later, the last 2 1/2 spent in pain, I am at the point of having another surgery to hollow out the canal to take pressure off my sciatic nerve. I did the usua preoperative protocol, having taken Predizone-3 caudle back blocks 3 weeks apart. Now my option is to try and fix it.

My pain is mild right now, so I will wait as long as possible. Sometimes, it feels as though my leg is not going to work.

I can no longer sleep on my left side, and if sitting, have to have it straight out to the side. I am 65 years old, healthy, other than my back and female.

Thank you for a great site.
