Last year my right leg went numb after a fall. I then learned that I had a herniated disc between L2 and L3. I had a laminectomy and disectomy in that area with no fusion of the bone or no padding spacer. Sorry not sure of the correct terminology. Since then I have been feeling a lot more pain almost like my bones are grinding. I have not been able to sleep a full night since the surgery and my pain is getting worse. Last week I slipped downs some stairs and went to the hospital and was told I have another herniated disc between L4 and L5 with severe deterioration of the spine. She said it was the worse case she had seen in a 38 year old women she had personally seen. She also told that if I didn't take care of this now I would not be walking. I am afraid of having surgery again but I am more afraid of not being mobile. I have a 3 year old son and he truly does suffer because of my pain which is not his fault. Can you please help?
