Has anyone had this. I had a micro on 3-5-08 and 3-28-08 and now they are thinking that this continued pain is from possible particles that they may have not saw after the disc ruptured. They are going to schedule me a MRI to see if there is anything else going on. If it is this that would explain the pain varying from one leg to another, ocassional feet numbness, and all of this low back pain. I don't know what they would do if it is a floating particle that's just moving and irrating the nerves. It not hurting anything its just really causing me alot of pain. The only other thing they think it could be is discogenic from degenerative disc disease in 3/4-5/1. Who knows.


  • I had a laminectomy on February 12th April 1st and July 1st all this year and now my doctor thinks I need another one pain and numbness the worse it has ever been I am so sorry you are going through this hang in there and know you are not alone :O
