When I was eighteen I herniated two discs (L4 was 2.0 centimetres and L5 2.3+ centimetres... can't remember exact amount).
I had a microdiscectomy last March that removed three 'extremely large' fragments and felt immediate pain relief in my leg. Still have numbness and no reflex to this day, but the pain left and I could stand, sit, and lie down again.
The past few months I've slowly been getting the "bone crushing" leg pain back (and the inability to lie down, stand up, or walk).
I was wondering if anyone has had more than one microdiscectomy on the same location? If it's possible?
Or if anyone went through something similar and what their doctors' did about it...?
