Hi everyone, great site here, I appreciate your help. I had a fusion of L4-L4 6 months ago. I have had previous lamenectomies at L4-L5 and L5-S1 in the past. Right after the surgery I woke up with numbness/burning in both feet and partial foot drop in left foot. About six weeks later I started experiencing severe low back pain. My neurosurgeon did and MRI last month and said he does not see anything that could be causing foot drop. The MRI states that I have extensive epidural fibrosis encasing the thecal sac and nerve roots. He told me to go see a Pain management doctor as we had tried lyrica, ametriptilene, vicodin, ultram, etc. to no avail and various side effects. I cannot take narcotics as I have the side effect of not being able to sleep with them. So the PM doc has recommended that I undergo an SCS trial. Is this too soon after my surgery to try an SCS? If it works, that would be great, as I am getting frustrated with the pain, but I don't want to cause any other problems. Thanks for your help. I am also going for an EMG tomorrow.
