hello new to the forum, i had surgery june 5th 2014, things were not going as I anticiapated, i was at work and went to lift a full 5gal bucket of waste (40-60) lbs, when i went to set the bucket down i felt something in my lower back pop, was seen by comp doc, he recommended mri, mri showed l3-4 disk herniation, so i had surgery.
after sugery I was sore, still had leg pain,(upper left thigh) and lower back pain, see nuerosugeon 1 week after surgery, puts me on stronger pain meds, I call and complain 2 weeks later that I am not feeling any better, he continues pain meds, I keep calling and complaining, mean time I am doing what i am supose to be doing, walking, light stretches ect ect.
on july 21st sends me for mri, results say still some moderate hernaition at l3-4, and l4-5, he says that should not be causing my pain level.
what concerns me is I can still see the herniations on the mri, as i see something strange looking at S1.
can someone help me determine what the mri is seeing.
I haven`t figured out howto post a pic of the mri, but at S1 the top of the bone is white and has big L shaped divet init.
