I had a Tlif in July for a collpased l5/s1. The surgery was successful. Immeaditly after surgery I was in horrible pain on my let hip/outer thigh and middle of my thigh. I lierally feel like someone is punchin me over and over in the center of my thigh.
I had my 5 month post open and the doctor told me it was dermatomes. Everyday I struggle wih this pain, spasms, and my leg stiffening uo. I stil, have back pain, but not right leg nerve pain anymore.
My PM told me he wants to do an MRI and see whats going on. They are looking towards facet injections. I have never had one and quite frankly i am scared. My last epidural back injection went terribly wrong. I missed 4 days of work and almot got fired for being out that long.
Iam super nervous about having a facet injection. I do need to hurry up because I met my health insurance deductible with the back surgery.
