I had a surgery in November 2008 for a herniated disc at L4-L5. I also have a herniation at L5-S1, but it was not causing any of my pain symtoms (not pinching a nerve). I had another MRI on January 12th 2009 and it shows a re-herniation at L4-L5 and obviously the herniation at L5-S1.
My OS is sending me for a couple of steroid injections. If those do not work, my options are a Spinal Cord Stimulator or a 2 level fusion from L4-S1.
Anyone have any experience with either or both of these procedures and which one might be the better choice at this point?
