    Laser is doable if it is just a soft tissue thing, bone is a whole different animal.

    About 5 years ago I had 2 bulging. One between the L5/S1 and the S1/S2. I had a lot of sciatic pain. I was able to get everything back to normal through physical therapy and has been good since then.

    This is by far the worst for me too. If you ever find a solution let me know.

    I effed up my back BAD when I was 11-12 and that shit plagued me all the way through high school. I’d get healed up, try to lift something, hell, just stand back up straight from being bent over and I’m be crippled up again for weeks. Muscle spasms and everything. Damn did it suck. All I can say is make sure you’re healed up totally before trying anything.

    Don"t known if its a big difference with necks or backs, but... i had something bulged or herniated in the neck and after numerous injections on the neck, I couldn't take it anymore. Should not have waited as I now have permanent nerve damage as have
    tingling and numbness in right hand, but have no pain what so ever. Dr Tim Watt from Black hills Spine Center in Rapid City.

    Thank you to all of you who have messaged me or offered the advise on this forum. Doing some of the exercises, ibuprofen and not being real physical or doing a lot of lifting. It seems like I have been able to ease the sciatic nerve pain. I still have to watch how I get in and out of vehicles so I doing get that nerve so excited that I can tough the moon. I have encountered many people on NA and in my community who have had surgeries with Dr. Berlanger and pretty much 100% of them would go back to him and they lead pretty normal lives. Even those people who had part of a hardware store put in. Still praying for a minimal invasive procedure if at all possible.

    Stay warm everybody! Birth rate should increase in North Dakota in 9 months if you guys keep your rod out, and keep that line tight down hole!

    I hope all goes well Paddledogger , I think you got a lot of good advice. Has anyone tried Acupuncture, Dry needling or Hypnosis for pain relief ? My wife had some dry needling done and it helped but from what I gathered dry needle and acupuncture are not the same ? Or is dry needling just a new name for acupuncture ?

    In the past i had acupuncture with shock electrodes attached.
    Felt darn good but i was too far gone to do any good.
    Waiting too long for surgery and you get permanent nerve damage and i always waited too long!
    You will know when you need to go under the knife but try everything else first if possible.

    They are not the same. One is based in Chinese medicine and something with chi and meridians and the other is a western medicine philosophy that works on myofascial pain and neurophysiology.

    Well...visited Neurosurgeon this morning. Decided that he will remove the disk material that oozed out of the disk and hitting the nerve. So now need to do pre-op physical and get it scheduled. Doc expects it to be a 30 minute procedure and “outpatient”. The other herniated disk is a ticking time bomb if I don’t watch myself. Doc says take it easy, even when it feels good. Give the disk time (a year) to fully heal, but light duty first 3 months. Felt good thinking that I would still make the REO Speedwagon concert at 4 Bears on 20th, only to find out that it got “cancelled” due to vocalist is having medical procedure. Hopefully make the REO/Styx concert in Bismarck in March.

    Stay warm everyone!

    Good luck going under the knife. Make sure you have some one there with you. My surgery was also out patient. They had me walk to the car, under my own power after surgery(I wasn't driving), but between anesthesia still wearing off and the effects of surgery, I was a little wobbly and can only imagine how awful it would have been had I fell. Have your wife, gf or mistress help you to the vehicle if they make you walk. Again, good luck and hope all goes well! Oh, and before I forget, enjoy the fun drugs you get after and ice ice ice as much as you can after.

    Thanks for the advice H82bogey! The Mrs. will likely pamper me....at least for a few days. I hope to only use the pain stuff very little. I've seen what that stuff can do to people. Goal is to take it easy this spring, teach the wife on how to run the snowblower and work on getting better in time for Paddlefishing in May. FISH ON!!!!
