Does there come a point when surgery is necessary?
I have been suffering from back problems for years. I had sciatica in my twenties, but that may have been muscular rather than disc prolapse.
Recently I had an MRI, and it showed that I have a disc prolapse in the L5-S1 region.
Some people are recommending that I get surgery. My osteopath wants me to get a second opinion about that, but I'm wary.
I have been suffering for years and its getting worse. I work detailing cars and doing smash repairs, so my job requires lots of bending and flexing and even lying down on the ground. Needless to say this is quite difficult. The pain is making it difficult to even operate (in fact I'm now mostly doing office work), so I'm considering surgery.
Is it possible to restore the disc without surgery? How long do these kind of things take to repair? I'm still at work, but not really working (because I can't). If I get surgery I'm worried that I'll be off work for a while, but if this continues I'm also in for trouble.
