new to the board. first post.
40 year old male who has had one microdisectomy on L5 S1.
Recently i have been having excruciating pain in what feels like my left hip, but typically have numbness on the left side of my left shin bone and numbness on the top of my left foot.
i know this isnt a classic case for any doctor, but was told i had a labral tear in my hip and also disc issues with L4.
i have had mri/xrays of all areas to determine what the issue is, both results say there is some issue.
my question is if i must have surgery (again) should i opt to have my disc fused with the idea that it might quiet down the hip pain OR have the hip issue addressed first.
has anyone out there ever heard of such a thing or had similar experience?
thanks in advance.
