L5 and S1 servere ruptured disc. I had servere pain down my left leg, could not sleep, or sit. Had surgery a discemtomey on L5 and S1, after surgery, both of my leg hurt serverly I could barely walk and the Orthro doctor sent me for emergency MRI and ended getting amitted to the hospital to have a second back surgery on the same disc. I am in worse pain now I have terrible pain down my left leg. The pain is twice as worse as before my very firstsurgery. I am using a cane, living on pain pills, and steriods. I was told the the sciatic nerve was flured up and it needs to heal. I don't understand anything, I am miserable. I thought that is way I had to the surgery so I would not be in this much of pain I understand nerve pain, but not pain that you can not barely walk. I spoke with the docotor on Monday and he is now sending me for a third MRI. I am totally confused and do not understand way I am still in a lot of pain. This has totally ruined my life, two little girls that I can get to preschool and I can not even drive. I spend most of time in bed. I am so depressed and miserable. I just want to feel better. I pray each night for a light at the end of the tunnel.
