Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    Epidural, Surgery, Spinal Fusion Surgery
    Improved
    Discectomy Surgery, TENS/Electrical Stimulation, Chiropractor, Rest, Massage, Cortisone Injection, Ice, Mattress Change, Strengthening Exercises
    Not Improved
    Stretching, Weight loss, Acetaminophen, Physical Therapy, NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs
    Worsened
    Laminectomy (Decompression) Surgery

Surgery helped but I still have nerve damage from my navel down to my toes and in right arm, shoulxer and neck. Sciatica has improved but due to nerve damage, I cannot sit on hard surfaces or if on cushion, it is best to recline relieving my spine of pressure.
