Ive had 2 discectomys. The first one failed right away and after the second I felt really good until I went back to work. After I was back to work I had weeks where the pain seemed to go up and down. But lately it seems like it hasnt been changing. Its been 6 months since my last surgery and at times I feel almost as bad as before.
The weird thing is I really dont have any back or leg pain. Its just in the feet, and I cant stand it. It almost feels like theres a nail stuck in my foot. My dr doesnt seem to think its sciatic pain, he thinks that it just your normal foot pain from being on your feet throughout the day. Its not, its nerve pain.
Anyways he released me from his care. I am not taking any pain/nerve meds because he thinks I need to wait it out awhile longer. Also I did have an MRI awhile back and no reherniation and minimal scare tissue.
I am at a loss. I have no idea what to do. I have tried all conservative treatments, 2 surgerys, and still in pain. I really cant deal with this much longer. I realize I have to be patient and that nerves take time to heal but at 6 months out of surgery I dont see why I have the nail in foot pain when there is no nerve root inpingement.
Has anyone had similar pains or can anyone give me some ideas. I really dont want to start all over with new Drs to find one that will atleast try to search for a reason that I am in pain. My Dr was such a nice guy, but it seems like after they do thier job they just dont care anymore.
