Hello, I had a lumbar fusion to L5 on 3/3/2015, for a pinched nerve due to a herniated disc. The surgery went well and upon waking I felt immediate relief of the pain radiating down my left leg. It is now several days later, my back is healing well, but I have new pain down my leg that is worse than before. I found this site and saw threads with people who have experienced the same problem. After reading through 98 responses I did see not one person who posted that they found relief or a solution. Is there anyone who has experienced this and is now pain free? What is there to do? Thank you for any help.
