I have had a discectomy on L4/5 and I have pain that has swapped swapped sides before and after surgery in 09. I'm having sciatica again in my left leg, but when my pain swaps sides my left leg sciatica immediately disappears and my right side only has minor issues.
I recently seen a Dr. and he immediately said I need a fusion because of the disc getting shorter but the MRI images look the same as a previous MRI I had in 2010 so I'm not convinced on the fusion.
I think there could be a small piece of disc that herniated out that may be causing my sciatica.
Has anybody had pain that swapped sides like me?
