I have had an L5-S1 disectomy and decompression, surgeons said a huge disc piece was removed. also a caudial epidurial a week before the major op.
I have just come off morphine and valium/diazipam and have noticed my right leg/buttock is flaring up and causing me alot of pain.
The question is: is this part and parcel of having the operation which was in April 09.
Or could the disc have potentally moved to the right hand side!!!! more op's.
Im still numb in the left buttock/leg/foot and the genital area, should this subside or is this part of the effects of the caudial epidurial????
