~X( I hope that I can at least find some others that
have been through something simialar,and maybe some suggestions..I am writing this for my Husband,who had a laminectomy Jan 08,2008. And is worse off now than before. They have diagnosed him with failed back surgery syndrome.He has a large amount of epidural fibrousis at the sugrery site,that is pinching the nerve root.PT on land was unsuccesful,so he is now trying water therapy.He has one epidural nerve block with no success..He is on neurotin,valium,vocidin for pain,which is so severe sometimes that his legs will loose movement and control..It seems we have just been on a run around with doctors..One my main questions is,when his disk ruptured,he couldnt not get into surgery for over 2 months,and the ruptured disk was severly hitting the siactic nerve.Could this length of time between surgery and rupture caused permante nerve damage.I am desperate for any help or advice,My husband is only 35..Thank you!!
