This is my first post so I hope this is the right place. First I have severe non-stop leg and foot pain 24 hours a day. A recent MRI reveals: "Moderately severe degenerative disk disease at the L5-S1 level with superimposed right foraminal / lateral zone disk herniation contributing to severe right sided neural foraminal stenosis."
The lumbar epidurals shots no longer work and the pain is kicking my back side. My neurosurgeon appointment is 2 months away (must be a shortage of neurosurgeons). Is the above description of the L5 S1 something most surgeons would consider for surgery? To me this sounds serious...
Thanks for any input!!
