This was the 3rd time in a month I'd been admitted for torturous nerve pain in my back plus a little leg pain.(very little to no spasms) Does anyone else end up with pain like this 5 months after a microdiscectomy? Is this normal? What could ba causing this?


  • You had to go again? I'm sorry to hear that it happened again.

    Did they check for infection? Do you have hardware that might be the problem? Have you talked to your surgeon?

    I really hope you find someone who can help you find a solution to this. It's horrible having to go to the hospital every couple of weeks.

    I'm sending you a gentle cyber hug.
  • Have they done Cat scans, MRI's, Discogram?

    I'm no dr. but sounds suspiciously like a disc herniation - it a can happen.
  • my appointment is at the end of otobet which feels so far away with the way things are.My biggest fear is that I wait months for my mri (tends to be the way of thingson the nhs)then they see nothing and I get told nothing can be done.Before I went into hospital this time I woke at 3.30am and took 3x oxynorm, 10mg diazipam,paractamol,diclofenac suppository, after going to bed having taken 30mg oxycontin,10mg oxynorm and 30mg amitryptaline at 9pm!
    Before I had my op the surgeon said I had bone changes below s1 and didnt know if it would help.I'm scared that this is whats giving me the pain and nothing can be done for it.My surgeon wont go into detail about anything because he thinks people hang on to information too much and dwell on it.I'd rather have as much info as possible personally.
