Hi i'm new to this site, had a back injury in Jan 09, tried epidural, no change. The injury is L5/S1, had surgery in Feb 09 and my leg and foot is still numb. Doctor said that nerve is inflamed, I don't get it. Had a prior surgery on L4/L5 3 years ago on the other side of spine and everything went great, but this time no luck. Has anyone had the same problem? Will it get better? I know nobody's a Doc but I still have hope that the numbness will come back.
Thanks for reading,
