I was in a MVA on Dec24,2008 that has made my life hell. I am a proud father of 3 growing boys who need me. I have been in pain since the night of the accident. I am hoping I can find some help on these boards. I have been going to PT since Feb, and to a Chiropractor weekly since Dec 28. I still have a lot of mid back pain and pain going down both of my legs into my calves and ankles and even sometimes my toes along with numbness in my saddle area. I went to a neurosurgeon who said he could do a L4 and L5 bi-lateral forminatomy which would help my leg pains. I also went to a orthepedic surgeon who wanted to inject cortisone into any area I said I had pain. He also didn't see the same problem the neurosurgeon saw on my MRI around L4 and L5. I am not a believer of steroid injections and want long term relief without injections. What is next next step for me. I need help!
