So back in Jan. I had a 3 level Spine Fusion. I had the L3 to S1. Since than my back feels awesome, very little pain if any, and I can reach down and tie my shoes and twist and lay on my stomach and arch my back with full extenstion of my arms. Sometimes I may have some pain when i lay down on something soft for longer than 30 mins but I have learned to live with the feeling of no pain in my back, except for minor nusiances. However I had an EMG today and was told that from my L3 to L5 I have pinched nerves. I called my therapist and asked him point blank without giving him any information on my results of the EMG how my prgress has been. He has said that my leg strength has gotten better and stronger. That I am doing things with my legs such as lifting them up and straigthening out a little further. The EMG showed that the L3 to L5 nerve is pinched. They say it can take up to a year since the nerves grow back 1 mm a day. Mind you from my groin to my knee is almost 3 feet. I want to know what I can expect as right now due to this I have been walking with a walker and have since now been on a cane for about a month with a brace. What do they do for pinched nerves since I had my L3 to S1 discs removed and cages put in. What do they do for pinched nerves? He has told me possible injections of steroids. Your help is appreciated.
