Prolased disk

Discussion in 'Health and Fitness' started by dog1, May 2, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I had prolapsed disk last year, it kept me on sick leave and visiting the mo for a couple of months. I did not get the operation only just. How do other guys with this on Ex or deployment ? Back and trying to up fitness levels but unsure how the back will perform from now on ?
  2. Ask your doctor.

  3. It all depends of the ammount of damage you have done and how many discs?

    It's like asking "How many bites in a mars bar"?

    After major disk surgery twice on my spine, my tip is early intervention! As soldiers we grin and bear it, when it comes to the crunch (compensation) we are told "but you managed why now?". Look after yourself first, army second!
  5. Ditto, the army cocked mine up in Munster and then when medically down graded sent me out on exercise.

    Then when discharged it took 5 years of fighting the Mod, to substantiate it was Service Related!
  6. I'm still bugged 4 years later. Take the time to recover.
  7. Mine in BMH Munster was in 1988 and I have not been pain free since!!

    Now I have HAD to accept it as a part of the rest of my life . . . :x :x
