I recently had a diskectomy and laminectomy on Oct. 17th and I still have a lot of pain. The nerve was actually attached to the ruptured disk so the neurosurgeon had to pull it off which caused more damage. I was put on a steroid pack to relieve some of the inflammation. It did not help. Should I be concerned about further surgery? I have been dealing with this pain since Jan. 1st of this year.
