I have a Microdiscetomy scheduled on Feb 25th on L3-4, but most of the pain I have lately has been from my left buttox down to my left calf and around the front of my lower leg. Also pain in my two smallest toes on both sides. This to me sound like L5-S1. I also have the pain involved with the L3-4.When I asked my surgeon he said he could find nothing to cause the L5-S1 pain.I just wondered everyones thoughts on this, I hate to have the micro-d and then find out later that I still have to have a fusion on the L4-5-S1 that I had operated on earlier in June 2009.
I've had MRI in December, X-rays in November and A Myelogram done in January 2010. So he had plenty of tests to see what was going on. He attributed some of the pain to the fact that I'm still only 7 months out from Laminectomy on L4-5-S1, but this pain is new in the last month or so, so it worries me.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
