Hai to all
I am Anil, 46 year old male suffering from back associated pain since 21 years.since last 15 years increased severity in back ache along left lower limb and paraesthesia along lateral aspect of left foot.
I took ayurvedic treatment,tractions and painrelief treatments for 12 years then consulted a nuerosurgeon on 2008.
Then I under went bilateral L4-L5 fenestration Bilateral L5 -S1 foraminatomy and L4-5 /L4-S1 microdisctetomy.
I was recovered from severe pain and apparently normal till one year ago .
from last one year left leg weakness was developed ,pain in foot and knee and imbalance while walking .pain in left leg while sleeping.
from last six months i feel some bowel problems also.
Then I consulted a nuerosurgeon he advised for the surgery and stabilsation for recurrent disc prolapse. The MRI report of 17/11/2011 as follows
"1. L4-L5 shows post left sided disctetomy, residual disc herniation obstructing L5 root ,massive post operation
2.L4-L5 discal air (due to degeneration )see leading to artifacts.
3.The fibers of cauda equina are deviated dorsally and adherent to dural sac.
4 L4-L5 shows a right sided disc herniation .possible impairment of S1 rootand disc dessication at L5-S1"
please give the advises for what steps I have to do...Please HELP
