Hi all. This is abit like groundhog day but i am still hoping to find ppl on here in a similar position to me or were. I have had a L5S1 disc protrusion with central large annular tear for over 10 months now. I am currently on a public waiting list to get a Tlif surgery done, but only as a last resort. I am still hoping to avoid surgery obviously. I have pretty much exhausted all the common non surgery stuff. I work in a factory so i'm having a hard time there. Currently working 2 days a week. I would say my biggest issues are when bending and being on my feet for long periods. Just looking for anyone in or was in a similar scenario. Thanks, Adam.
