As I had so many kind messages about my sciatica, I thought I would update you on the consultation with the Neuro Spinal Surgeon.
Apparently the bulging disc is severe and the nerve is being squashed, hence the dreadful pain.
The good news is it can be fixed via keyhole surgery.
I can either wait 4 to six months (could be longer) for NHS slot or have the surgery done privately for some thousands of pounds.
I am thinking seriously about going private as the pain is so severe and to be honest I want my life back. But I am jumping between both depending on pain level at the time!
Any thought would be welcome.
