Rafiq Malik: Hi To all , I have herniated disk L5 ,S1 issue I had a very very bad pain of Sciatica before 10 days....I was given , Diclofenac Sodium, ibuprofen , , injections & tablets that didnt work , after many days usage of high dosage of pain killers , i decided to change the doctor , I explained the new doctor all above , he gave me an injection of Rocephin i got improvement i was surpised that its a antibiotic how does it effects on herniated disk issue? so he explained to me that there is a cyst
Misba uddin: Has anyone tried disc compression therapy
Rajiv Singh: l4l5s1 dic bulge right leg left leg pain
Ben Davis: Yeah I know what you mean! I feel older and more frail than the Pope!
Ben Davis: Hi, my surgeon suggested a double level fusion at L4/L5 to stabilise the area but success rates for that op weren't great and it's a very expensive op to have... I doubt the NHS would be willing to fund it. It's also got a very long recovery time.
Ben Davis: Hi, my back felt fixed for about 6 wks until I tweaked it during physio. Still have a lot of back pain now... seems to be flared up more often than not. With regard to meds I find Diclofenac is pretty effective at calming it down but no sooner do I stop taking it, it flares up again. Tried Codeine but that gave me horrendous pain in the liver area! Apparently not meant to take Codeine if you've had your gallbladder removed!
lee eardley: im going through this at the minute , i have got the bulge on l4-l5 disc, first did it 14 years ago and been having problems with back since dec last year, now straight to the doctors when i developed and having my mri 9th January , have been told that i am having an operation with in the next 2 weeks......Im abit nervous about the op and if there is going to be any after problems....
Tywin Lannister: It's basically a result of me having terrible posture from working very long hours at computers and the dominating factor of bad heredity. My dad has the same problem, just much worse, and my grandfather is actually missing two discs in his back with pretty jacked up sciatic problems...so ya, that probably had something to do with it. I've seen the MRI, but honestly I can't make much of it other than the bulge and the displacement. Thanks for responding, appreciate the advice on the issue.
welmond: dude, i have the same issue as well. how did you injure your disc? did you get to see your mri? i'm curious what it looks like as i'm trying to make sense out of mines.
if possible you might want to avoid the meds or take a look of the side effects. i was given pain meds and it did a great deal of damage to my body.
With enough time, the body will absorb the herniation which is basically causing your pain... assuming the herniation doesn't ravel down the spinal canal
TheEmpowered787: I would love to figure out how to read these things. Perhaps in the future we'll have 3D MRIs
