Surgery on November 18th 2008 for L4, L5 and S1. I have not returned to work, I am a little nervous about returning, my job is to sit at a desk working on computer for 8-10 hours a day. I am still hurting in the buttock area and in my left leg, especially alot of pain in my calf. My 6 week xray shows that I had not even started fusing. I have another doctors appt on Feb 19th for another set of xrays. The doctors put me on a new medicine called Neurontin for the nerves in my leg, but I still hurt. If I do much of anything I get really tired and hurt bad especially in the buttock area, not sure why.
