bulging discs

I am new here...I have had in the past a decompression surgery on L4-5 and then a fusion on L4-5. Now I am having extreme back pain going down my leg into my foot. Had an MRI and it showed 2 bulging discs L2-3 and L3-4 but also showed a lot of bilateral facet arthropathy in the bulging disc areas and L5-S1. I am in pain all the time..cant sleep for more than a couple hours due to the pain. I am seeing my orthopaedic surgeon on Monday thank goodness but wondering if anyone has ever had a surgery for the bilateral facet arthropathy? most of my pain seems to be in that area more so than where the bulging discs are. Guess I am just looking for some answers and if anyone has been in my situation.
