I am sorry to post here but new to this.
I wrote a long time ago about a laminectomy that i had in July.
I have since been classified as a failed back surgery.
Being in and out of hospitals for related issues I also have polyneuropathy.
Just sound out that i have severe scar tissue and a synovial cyst which is small but impinging on the right L5 nerve root.
BUT I have severe!!!!! pain on the left side buttocks along the side of the tail bone!!!!!!!!!!!!
The pain gets worse when sitting, not dx with cauda equine, but the pain is in the saddle bag area>
My question if anyone can pleaseeeeeeeee answer is could the pain that I am experiencing be from the cyst on the right side!\Is that possible?
neuro suggest resection of the cyst in conjunction with a posterolateral lumbar interbody fusion (what is that)
Any infor would be greatly appreciated!!
