Hello all! My name is Daryll and this is my situation. In January of 20 i was involved in a motor vehicle accident resulting in a herniated disc at the l5s1. After 6 weeks of physical therapy and the nerve block shots survey was performed in October of 2011. 6 weeks after surgery i was admitted back to the emergency due to horrific pain I'm my right leg. After an mri and a nerve block shot i was released. I fought for weeks with the original surgeon telling him i was still in severe pain and was told "there is nothing more i can do for you." This is a workers comp case so i am sure he was just done with me. I met with another surgeon whom i really like and after another mri it was revealed the disc was reherniated. I had another surgery August of 2012. After follow ups i was still complaining of pain soff to another mri, it showed a facet joint cyst at the l5l4. The cyst wad removed on June 25th 2013. I've read that people who have had this surgery done report that right after their pain was gone, mine however is still here. My worries are since this has been going on for so long, could i have done permament damage to myself or will this just take time. I'm 36 and already "lost" 3 years of my life to this pain and i just want it to be over. Right now i can barely walk without a cane and sleeping is incredibly difficult. I go back to my surgeon on July 29 but i was hoping for some answers before then. Thank you in advance!
