  • I had yearly sciatic pain in butt and down my legs it was so serve this year that they put me on steroids and the sent me to PT  while i was in PT the pain got so severe the my core got weak and by week 2 i was on a walker, 

    i went to the orthopedic doctor they did an MRI and found i have moderate degenerative disc change at L4 L3and L4 and L5 and they say it's herniated and they want to do surgery.

    My legs are so weak I can barley stand and when i do stand it hurts but I'm afraid of surgery any other ideas

    Take it easy and give yourself time to heal, follow all your doctor's instructions
