Mishah Ahmed: 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
Tywin Lannister: I hear ya dude, im 27 years old with L4 & L5 (severe) degeneration, acute sciatica and herniation of the disc as well. I can't get pain meds for anything, even though I have a legitimately jacked up back, all the freaking junkies have to go drug seeking and freak everything up for those that actually need them.
They put me on dilaudid recently, and that works well, but I WILL NOT bank on ever getting a script of it again, not with the way Dr's are nowadays.
michael mccaffrey: for the last 2 months
michael mccaffrey: .i had the lamenectomy/discectomy 10 yrs ago...now i must have reinjured this somewhere down the line(again)..no one knows(not even professional Drs). of the excruciating,lightning bolt,type of pain that will keep you from daily life...until you get an mri ..i just got another mri today..i did notice the bulging discs in a couple areas.and until someone reads it, i cant get nothing stronger than iboprofan...I would like to thank all the junky bastards who ruined my quality of life
hellc666: Hey, I'm 35 too ;) My MRI is almost identical as this one... but never had any surgery.. been in pain for 9months now.. It's pretty good at the moment but it's still there, my sciatica symptoms are still there in the morning though.. Do you think I should get surgery or it's healing on it's own already? When it's not the leg that's hurting, it's my left buttock muscles.. (piriformis).. Thanks !
TheOcarroll123: Hi Ben, thanks for the info, could you please let us know your progress as i have the same awful pain with sciatica really looking for suggestions as now going on 5 mts and can;t get through the day with out meds, tramadol, iburofen and paracetmol don't want to take these any more as mucking me up, how are you now after microdiscetomy, would you reccommend or anyone else like to share thoughts.. cheers ,
Cherie Michel: Thanks for this video. I am post op from a lamectomy where the bulging part of the disc was removed. I feel better but not as well as I should. Went to new ortho and he says latest MRI shows the disc is again starting to herniate. Wants me on strong anti inflamatories and pt. Pain management also put me on a stronger pain med for when the anti inflamatories are not enough. If this doens't work ortho wants to do a spinal fusion at L4/L5.This scares me. Has anyone else had this done? Did it help?
Ben Davis: Thanks, the microdiscectomysurgery went well. Reading the operation notes... He says he utilised part of the old scar. He then says there was considerable scarring or narrowing in the canal, I can't be sure of what he's written there...He then goes on to note that there's "no significant loose material in the canal, but astonishing quantity of loose soft material in the disc..." something or other, could be space ? Finally he notes "Contributing to large bulge in upright posture".
Amesn1: Your story is EXACTLY like mine. I had my first surgery July 09. Now I'm in pain again (not as bad yet) Had an MRI yesterday. I'm 35. I feel 105. Hope your surgery went well!!!
