Hi, it's been over a year since I had a L4-5 left micro - discectomomy, foraminonomy and laminonomy. They removed the ligamentum fl. But did not address the rt side for moderate stenosis. First, the good news. My epidural scar tissue shrank from last year to this year. I am getting around well. However, I have DDD now andI get numbness in my rt thigh. It gets bad at times when I stand and lay flat. It drives me a little nuts. When is it time again to visit the surgeon and what is the best proceedure?
