hi there from scotland, i had a prolapsed disc removed las may it was compressing my nerve to my left side, the pain was chronic and i was imobile from january (when it went ) until the operation in mid may. although the operation gave me the feeling back in my leg the pain is still shooting from my buttock right down my leg i am 39 with 4 kids and i feel my life is just not the same it is with me 24/7. i just had more MRI results and the consultant (who is very good) said that the pain must now be caused with fibrosis hitting the nerve. can you please tell me if there is any way i can ever be pain free and get some sort of life back this just seems to be going on and on and is really affecting my life and my familys life. thanks for any help you can give and paitiently awaiting youre reply

Hi shan,

Welcome to the group.

I thought there were several replies to your message, but they seem to have disappeared. Very strange. I don't know what happened... it has never happened before. I hope it was just a one time glitch.

No way to get them back, I'm afraid. I apologize and hope you'll continue to participate in the group.
