I had been having pain on my right side ever since my L4/5 discectomy surgery in Aug 09. I had pain in my hip that was severe and was having trouble doing a lot of walking. My surgeon had told me that there was an instability in that joint since the disk had blew out so much material. Well the severe pain finally passed a couple of months ago and I thought with time the rest of my pain that was in my right lower back/upper butt area would clear up.
Last week I woke up to get out of bed and felt no pain on my right side but felt a strange feeling in my left calf. I thought uh oh this can't be good and its not. The last few days I have had sciatica in my left leg all the way down to my toes and just today my right leg had sciatica issues though not as bad.
I had finally started coming out of my depression and now this happens... what a way to live. Im sure things will progress worse so now im just looking at my options which are fusion and im not in a big hurry to do that. Looks like I may have problems a lot sooner than I was hoping.
