4years ago I herniated a disc playing golf. I was 21 years old. I was hospitalized 3 days. I had pain in hips and thighs legs to. My husband had to help me walk and shower. The doc gave me Ibupofen' steroid pills in a 7 day pack, flexeril, vicodin, and a nerve pill called neurontin. I was fine in 2 weeks and back to normal. I should have went to work on strengthening my core and stretching and doing more preventative measures. In April I had a miscarriage. Ever since then my disc reherniated and since then knave been I. Tons of pain. Only find relief when I lay flat. Can't work can't drive can't sit up for long periods of time. It stinks. I'm praying for my back constantly. I can't live like this. I want my life back. Were going to attempt physical therapy soon and will avoid surgery at all costs. Consistency is key. My friend also has this same issue.
