Hi ladies, bit of a long shot. I'm new to this. I'm looking for some support also. Have had herniated disc for 6 years now, this last year my worst, had an MRI proving a L5-S1. The last 8 weeks have been my worst, off work, can't do everyday jobs or look after my children. Depression started creeping in m, surgeon said he couldn't do a lot to help back in October 2015, but I now have nerve damage/pain down my left buttocks and pins and needles in my left foot. I am having steroid injections waiting list 6-8 weeks. Is there anyone suffering the same? Had any steroids? How are you coping with life? Thanks
