I am a 35 yr old male. Back in may i had a microdisetomy and a laminotmy L5 S1. Its was on right side i was losing strenght. Numb from hip down and horrible pain. Now its 5 months later and i am having a whole new horrific pain on left side. I cant do dishes or cut up food standing for more then 5 mins without having to lay down. Its nothing like what was going on with the right side before surgery. Now if i lay on stomach or when i am at pt they stick heating pad under lower back and put my feet up. That kills me everytime. I would say if feels like theres a small golf ball in there. Not from touch but just the feeling alone. I would say my back has to be like 2 lego pieces touching straight across. But what it feel like is one of the legos it sitting up higher then the other which cause horrible pain. So i have neen have trouble urinating for over 2 weeks. Been to the er. The scaned kidneys prostate ans bladder . All normal. So i went to er again yesterday because my fear is that its something to do with spinal cord. So tgey do a normal mri. Not with contrast. Dr says your mri isnt horrible. But we see nothing on side your having pain. And blamed the urinating problem on meds or my blown disc before surgery. This is now the 3 time in 6 weeks i am having trouble using the bathroom. So meds i dont believe it. And blaming it on my prior problems i dont believe that either. I never had bathroom issues untill i had surg. I believe i nees mri with contrast to see whats going on. This pain is mind blowing. Im in bed almost all day because of it. Anyone have any idea about the new pain or bath problems?
