So I have to make a big decision this week and need your advice. I had an MD six weeks ago and from the moment I woke up, my crippling ( and I mean crippling) foot pain was still there. I was told it was the nerve settling bla bla but at 2.5 weeks post op I had an MRI which showed some sort of tissue or residual debris was touching the S1 nerve which is inflamed and swollen. I now have appalling coccyx pain too and can barely sit. I have had two nerve root injections to flush out the debris but they made no difference. This week I have to go for another MRI on Thursday with a view to having another op on Friday. I am terrified. The first MD made things so much worse. The surgeon is supposed to be one of the best in the UK so I don't think it was an error on his part. Just bad luck. But what to do ? I can't carry on like this but can't face the possibility of another op making it even worse . What do you think ?
