The pain of sciatica

A little poem about myself, and the suffering I am going through waiting for an operation for sciatica,

Sciatica and the suffering

I’m lying here in severe pain
Troubled from long term sciatica
Appointment I’m waiting in vain
It can’t get here any quicker
-
Suffering nine month and more
Horizontal is to ease the pain
How comfortable is that floor
Simply It’s driving me insane
-
The doctor fills me full of pills
To make my life easier to bare
Stopping me from yelps and shrills
Now I’m flying high and I don’t care
-
One month more to my operation
To have that lumber laminectomy
Waiting is really like slow motion
To have that long awaited surgery

With that kind of pain, March 10 must seem like an eternity away.

Very much so, as I have been waiting since June last year, so the light at the end of the tunnel is now visable,
