SO I Was Wondering if this is Bad?

In the most extreme cases, when the nerve is pinched between the disc and an adjacent bone, the symptoms involve not pain but numbness and some loss of motor control over the leg due to interruption of nerve signaling.

This is Post Fusion on L4/5 in March 08. I am worried because it seems like it is following the same path before I had my original surgery, and Know I am thinking I may need another.
This decrease at times of pain and increased numbness and weakness is what has been going on with me the last few weeks, it actually started about 7-8 weeks ago. Then it started to feel like my Rt. Leg was getting better and stronger, had Epidural for the pain, and it went back to what it was, but seems worse. I get a lot of burning in foot, pain in Hip/back and left side is lower with numbness starting in left foot, but right leg strength is lacking and not improving.
