Ugh, that's horrible! :( So I'm guessing it isn't alleviating the sciatic nerve? The doctors told me that they could totally "kill" off the nerve. I didn't want to do that because than I wouldn't be able to feel anything.lol But, it could be something your mom could look into if she's still in a lot of pain.
Thanks. She had the surgery a week ago today. She was able to sit up for the first time. We were told ishe had to lay flat for weeks but the doctor let her sit up today. Thanks, nochoramet. We need all the prayers we can get.
