| | Herniated Discs
I have L4-L5 & L5-S1 herniated discs and Lumbar radiculopathy right leg.
It has been two months since what I call the eruptionMarch 25, 2010,(little did I know that my back has been degenerating for about one year prior-it had been stiff and sore when I would wake up but I thought it was that I needed a new mattress.
I am not overweight although I could lose about 7 pounds,regardless
I have had two transforminal injections spaced about 28 days apart,I have also taken hot baths,cold packs to my right leg,very little walking or sitting for any length, and now I am getting physical therapy.WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS DOES A DISCETOMY CURE HERNIATED DISCS AND CURE THE RADICULOPATHY? I WANT TO KNOW IF I SHOULD GET SURGERY IF IT IS A CURE OR NOT? THE PHYSICAL THERAPY (MECHANICAL TX,ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIM,THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE,MANUAL THERAPY,DEEP TISSUE VIBATORY MASSAGE HAS HELPED.
