My mother had this problem–she was on anti-inflammatories for years, but finally had to have it corrected surgically- it was successful. Good luck. Lay back and pull your knee to you chest to stretch out your glute; hold for several seconds. Lay that leg down and repeat with the other. Do this seevral times a day. This helped me alot.
I’m sorry that you’ve been having this problem. Since it’s been so long since your surgery, I’m going to suggest going to see a chiropractor as soon as possible. Chiropractors specialize in the structure of the spine and its relationship to the nervous system. You see, when vertebrae are misaligned (what chiropractic calls a subluxation), they can pinch/damage the nerves running out between them and cause pain, numbness/tingling, or any other type of general malfunction to that nerve’s corresponding body part. Chiropractors correct subluxations through adjustments and allow the body to naturally take care of itself.It’s not too late to see a chiropractor even though you’ve had surgery. Ask around, visit different offices, and choose a good chiropractor that seems best for you. Taking pain medication will only mask the symptoms (i.e. pain) of the problem but won’t do anything to correct it, and sooner or later you’ll need to take the medication all of the time just to feel normal. So good luck to you. There is definitely pressure on the sciatic nerve causing the pain. There are no exercises, unfortunately, that you can use. The best thing is anti-inflammatories.
