Judi - I dont mean to discourage you but I had an L4 - L5 - S1 Fusion on February 13th of this year. I am still having some major sciatic issues. (You can call when you cant sleep because I no doubt am awake too!) Dr. also told me that it will go away. I actually had it really bad in the beginning. (I would be really careful doing exercises that early on before you are fused unless the Dr. says it is ok!!!!!!) My sciatica then went away...I went back to work and it came back with a vengence! I am now back off work again. From what I hear this does not necessarly happen to everyone though.....I think I just over did it. I would be happy to talk with you if want. You can reach me at ***@**** would be happy to exchange contact info if you wish to talk in person.
