Again hello everyone. I am 28year old student, artist and wife. I've been married for 10 years this coming July. I injured my back in a car accident January of 2011. MRI showed my L5 S1 was herniated disc with sciatica pain down the right leg. Throughout last year I had the 3 steroid injections which the sciatica pain went to both legs and I have been seeing the Chiropractor for most of the year. I had ALIF surgery on Feb 9, 2012.
I don’t know if it is phantom pain but my legs have this dull but painful feeling in them and when I lay down my L5 S1 tail bone area hurts. Anyone else experience this weird pain after surgery? If so did it go away?
