I posted a few weeks back. I had had surgery L5-S1 laminectomy, Diskectomy, and something that starts with an F (dont remember what its called) anyways right away after surgery my legs felt great. The day after surgery while doing PT I had sudden and SEVERE sciatica in my right leg, which was opposite the leg I had the original pain in. They did an ultrasound to make sure it wasnt a clot and then wrote it off as swelling. Well it was really bad when I went home and when I went in for my 1 week checkup and they ordered another MRI.
The MRI came back inconclusive and again it was wrote off as swelling since I was only a week out.
Today I went in for my 1 month checkup and told the Dr I was still having quite a bit of pain in my right leg and lower back. She starts digging around some and finds the MRI notes which said there was a disc like piece pushing up against my right nerve. They couldnt tell if it was a piece that had broken off or a herniation. So she gets the Dr that perfored my surgery and they both look at the MRI and my history notes and come to the conclusion that they should go back in and see whats causing the sciatica pain down my right leg.
They both feel that its a disc herniation again. So I go in on Friday for another surgery. Hopefully this one takes care of all my issues.
