I found this forum yesterday after googling "how to cure my herniated disc." After a few of the success stories I immediately bought Dr. Sarno's book on my phone. I finished it today. I definitely feel like this is my problem but of course my mind is having a hard time throwing out that I have the herniated disc and the doctor already recommended surgery. But at the same time I was have been waiting so long and I am so frustrated with the whole process that I stopped taking all my medication a week ago and the pain is tolerable. My pain is all sciatic pain I actually don't have much pain in my lower back except the muscles are sore as mentioned in the book. I came to this forum and decided to follow the structured educational program so that I can put this information into action. Because after reading the book my first thought was okay I have this now what do I do. I'm excited to be here and on the way to recovery.
