I am an 18 year old female 5 weeks post surgery. I injured my back July of 2009 (14 years old). Of course doctors did not believe I was really in pain because of my age so nobody took me seriously until last year when I found an Orthopedic surgeon. I had a large central herniation with bone spurs causing pain down the left side of my butt, hip, back of my leg and foot. After the surgery I didn't have any leg pain at all. A couple weeks ago I had a couple sharp pains in the butt but nothing too serious. Now my hip is almost constantly in pain. I can't put any kind of pressure on it. For example sitting down or laying on my hip causes a lot of pain. I'm also having pain in my calf. I can't get my leg straight without a good amount of pain. I was diagnosed with mild congenital stenosis a few years ago but nobody has ever acted like that could be causing me any pain. I have also been having pain in my upper back and my pinky finger keep going numb. I was wondering if anybody had any ideas of what could be causing the pain. I know the nerve might just be "angry" but I'm scared of re-herniation and needing more surgery. Any input would be helpful!!
