I had a disc herniation at L5/S1 and had a microdiscectomy in Jan of this year. That surgery stopped the pain that was going down the back of my leg but I still had back,butt, hip and left side of thigh pain. We had a new MRI done in Aug and after trying to reach my surgeon for 2 months to get an answer on it I finally had someone else look at it and found there is a re-herniation at the same level as well as scar tissue abutting the left thecal sac, in the left lateral recess and partially encasing the sciatic nerve. The interventional radiologist wants to do an injection to that location in an attempt to fix it. He said not sure a good idea to do surgery for scar tissue as it will just scar again. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Thanks.
