OK, so I had a microdiscectomy and laminectomy (spelling?) back on March 4th. L5 S1 disc herniation. Everything went great! I felt great with the exception of some minor nerve damage in my left leg. The disc was compressing my sciatic nerve down my left leg. Well I am having some new pains! This time in my RIGHT leg!!! So...I am a bit concerned. This pain feels like electric shock at times, it started out periodic, and it is becoming more and more constant. The pain radiates down the front side of my thigh in towards my groin and stops right above my knee. Went to a concert Tuesday night and after the first hour or so the pain was to a point that I kept moving my leg, trying to stretch or do something different to relieve the pain. You know how it goes, you feel the pain and move all different directions trying to figure out the best way to sit or stand to be comfortable. I can feel the pain start in my lower back area and radiate around the front of my leg. Hopefully that makes sense.
So, I'm actually thinking maybe this is a different disc? Maybe scar tissue? I know...I know...go see my doctor and I will. I am the type that analyzes things first to determine how bad it is. I'm afraid of bad news. Any input would be great!
