pain after microdiscetemy

Hi all
I am a newbie and looking for help. I had a microdiscetemy 9 months ago L5 S1 on my left side with some taken away on my right. The disc was resting on my siatic nerves and. Surgery was great initially. I had no pain and was almost back to normal. But I have been having major problems with my right hand side lower back and leg. At the moment i am in agony with pain down my right side and am so fed up.
I have been to my Dr several times with the same problem who says it is muscular but should this still be happening.
I can't move without great discomfort, walking, driving. And this time the pain goes past my knee.

Has anyone else suffered like this and can you help. Should i demand another MRI scan? Please help with any suggestions. I am desperate, only 29 and tired of the pain.


I have been diagnosed with another disc herniation and currentl been pumped with pain killers that ease but do not take the pain fully. Waiting for an MRI scan and wondering how to cope with the pain and having no life.
