I had L5/S1 surgery done on Dec.19 for a herniated disc that was 2 1/2in. x 2 1/2 in. Because of the severity of the herniation I also had loss of feeling to my private area leaving me with no sensation to relieve my bladder. That is when I opted for surgery. Here is my problem:
I have terrible low back pain and tightness in my right buttock. Went back to NS and MRI shows I reherniated the same disc. Doc says to wait 2 weeks and see what happens???
I am on 400mg of Neurontin 6xday, 500mg Vicodin 6xday, 4mg prednisolone taper pack,4mg Zanaflex 3x day.. And to boot I have 5 children, used to work as an EMT now I can't work. Don't know what I am supposed to do to make a living these days or what to think about my back???? PLEASE HELP!!!! Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!
