I have a silly question? I have two herniated disc both of which are on nerve roots causing very extreme leg pain, numbing and tingling. I had a previous surgery to have partial disc removed off of the nerve at L5/S1. In addition to that disc -reherniating the L4 is also hernaited and is on the nerve root. Will Physical therpy help this time around with additional damage? Will steriod injections help? I am looking at a level two fusion and I was just wondering what the road ahead may look like in regard to any and all prior treatment.
I see the neuro-surgeon on Wednesday~
Thanks for any and all the advice you can send my way!
