Hi, I'm new to the forum. I had laminectomy done on L3-L5 about one year ago, because of persistent numbness in my lower left leg and foot following golf injury in Jul 2013. In hindsight, that was a mistake. Now I have new constant back pain in area of surgery and increased left leg pain. I still have full range of motion, and have been managing to continue working as a pharmacist. Now I went to seek a couple other opinions and they are telling me I need a fusion on 3 levels.
