Decompressive lumbar laminectomy with bilateral foraminotomies at l3 through s1 left-sided diskectomy l4-l5 with intraoperative nerve monitoring.First day after surgery nurse got me up to walk and my left leg was not working right.Doctor said it was pinched nerve.Was discharged after five days without any further explanation
One week later I was back in the hospital with a spinal leak and severe pain in my left leg.Doctor operated again to stop the leak.Left leg still not working and again told it was a pinched nerve and discharged me to go home.
A week later same thing,severe leg pain and another spinal leak.Operated on and leg still not working right.Doctor said it is swelling in the nerve and would take a long time to heal.
I decided to get another opinion,after several attempts I am not having any luck finding another doctor to take me as a patient.When they see my latest mri indacating a spinal leak they tell me they can't help me.
Has anyone else had this problem, or am I not going about this the wright way. Still in pain and not walking. Need help.
