I really hope someone can give advice:
I had a right sided L4 - L5 decompression and micro discectomy on Feb 2nd 2013, I'm experiencing extreme pain in my right hip and right leg ( feels like I've been hit by a bus ) on a scale of 1-10 my pain is about 50 and I'm not exaggerating
I have been to the GP who has upped my meds to 3x 25mg pregabalin, 7.5 mg Meloxicam, 4 Co-Codamol 30/500, he's put me on 3x 2mg diazepam, and 5x10mg Amitriptyline on a night.
I only had surgery on feb 2nd and things went really well no pain whatsoever!
But over the past 3 days I've had excruciating pain in my right leg from the hip , down the front of my right leg and into my calf ( no pins and needles in toes ) I'm finding it really difficult to walk the pain off , even when I lay down it kills baby one any ideas what this could be ???? I don't expect you all to be doctors/ neurosurgeons but please help me .... I'm seriously considering a trip to A&E this morning as this pain is so unbearable
PLEASE HELP !
Thanks in advance
