hi, I have a herniated disc in my lower back. They said it's mild and won't do surgery. They just want me to take pain meds the rest of my life.
It's not mild to me though. I can't even get up from sitting down without pain. When sat for long the pain radiates down both my legs. I was a carpet fitter for 8 years that's probably the reason it's popped out. I can no longer work.
So I need surgery, but being out of work funds are tight. Spire healthcare won't give me a price over the phone. They said I need a consultation 1st. That's £250.
Has anyone had the same surgery privately and if so how much did it cost you?
