I have had sciatic nerve pain on the left side for about 10 years. Had 2 discectomies and then went to Germany and had a fusion l5 s1 and an artificial disc l4 l5. Pain was greatly reduced but still had post surgery sciatic pain. Pain specialist recommended Marinol which help achieve more sleep less pain and less stress.
