I herniated my L4 four times and recovered without surgery every time. Prednisone (it really does work, @mistymage, your doc gave you the “good stuff”) and PT.
PT place called and I get to go get “tortured” on Friday! The lady who called me said she thought my name was familiar. When I said “Frozen shoulder” she instantly remembered me
Last night/early this morning I was awake in bed so I did a few different stretches and felt my back “pop”. The pain in my buttocks is minimal… the thigh to ankle are still screaming if I walk too much. Too much being variable and relies on if I overdid it 10 minutes ago or 30 minutes ago.
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
Re: TENS units. I got an over the counter one from a drug store. It did help. So i turned it up. It helped a little more. So i turned it up more.
TL/DR. I got a scarred butt and left leg
So be careful with those things.
