How often does this happen ?
I'm supposed to have a Spinal De-compression soon - but it sounds a serious op., apparently involves shoving my back muscles out of the way to get at my lower spine to enlarge a passage to fix my sciatic nerve's compression by giving it a bit more room.
BUT - it occurs to me that while that may well fix the sciatic nerve it could result in long term pain elsewhere starting in the areas disturbed during the op. - thus exchanging one pain for another.
Anyone comment - possible ? probable ? likely ? hardly ever ? 1 in 10 ? 1 in1000 ? etc.
