I had a disc slip a few years back. I have my exams next week. I have to sit for six hours daily for a week to write these exams. When I appeared for these exams last year, I experienced excruciating pain in my buttocks. I do not want to experience the same pain this time. Kindly give your suggestions.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern. Slip discs can be solved through medicines and physiotherapy for three to four weeks. I suggest you follow the following instructions while appearing for your exams:
1. Sit on a flat surface and wear LS (lumbar-sacral) belt. Avoid sitting continuously for more than 30 minutes. Try to walk every 30mins and then sit back.
2. Apply the hot pack with local application of Diclofenac (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) ointment following hot water fomentation twice a day. This helps in reducing the pain.
3. Avoid sitting or lying on the floor.
4. Do stretching exercises for the lower back every morning.
I hope this helps you.
