Had an open decompression l3-l5 found out the Dura had attached to l4 by scare tissue and suffered a significant dural tear while they were removing it. I had stretched my spinal cord so far the Dr. could see threw it, seems I had pushed my van off of an icy small hill by pushing the door post one leg out and one on the gas push like hell felt it go I had broken the insulation that protects the nerves in the spinal cord. had an Mri , EmG AND NUCLIAR X-RAYS there is no surgical solution . Was sent to pain management and had a spinal cord stimulator implanted got off lots of meds Lyrica gabapentin cut hydrocodone in half still have bad lower back pain but I can walk with out a can. your not alone
