My husband is 3 months post-op from a microdiscectomy on his L5-S1. He's still having persistent back, leg and buttock pain and cannot sit for an real length of time. He's on a list to have an MRI next month to see if they can determine the cause of the pain since his surgeon says he should be pain free at this point. One of the possible scenarios is that he has scar tissue from the surgery that is impinging on the nerve. Does anyone know if there is any way to get rid of this scar tissue if this is the case? Can they do another surgery or anything for it? Is anyone else in this same situation?
