I am new to this site,Thank you for having me. I would like to ask a 2 year post lumbar fusion question. In 2008 I had a Laminectomy, Discectomy at L4-5,L5-S1.Then in 2010 I had Lumbar fusion at L4-5.I cannot be on my feet for more than 10 minutes, then my lower back, sciatic area both left and right area, and my right outer thight becomes numb and burning starts in my right outer thigh. I also have permanent loss of sensation to touch in my left outer thigh.
My question, is there any hope that I will ever be able to be on my feet for a extended period of time again? Since my surgery I have had 4 epidurals, and I am currently receiving trigger point injections. Neither have given me relieve for more than 10 days. I also take Gabapentin and a pain med. Thank You for your responses.
