After having sciatica for a very long time I had a decompression and fusion of L5/S1 2 years ago and have not been in good health since with extreme lower back pain and pain in my legs.
The Sciatica went from having the operation but this weekend it has returned with a vengeance!
I am in so much pain and really struggling to cope.....has anyone else had this happen and what treatment were you given for this? Surgery? Acupuncture? Injections?
I have called my GP and he has referred me back to my surgeon but I think he will probably just say there is nothing he can do as he wasn't accepting of the fact that I have been in pain since the surgery anyway.
What have your experiences been with this?
