New here - sciatic pain in left leg

Hello. My name is Mike and I have had 2 surgeries on the L4/L5 region in the last several months. My first surgery was semi successful but my second has left me in almost as much pain as I was before the first surgery.

I haven't been able to work since April and I will likely have to kiss my dream job goodbye that I was supposed to start in mid-August due to the second surgery being unsuccesful.

I am just frustrated and sick of being in constant pain.

I posted a lengthy rant in the Sciatica/Radiculopathy section. Please take the time to read and share your thoughts, experiences, etc.
