I had a microdiscectomy 4,5 months ago this year. L3L4. It didn't help anything. The pain I had in my buttocks, scrotal parts an lower back are still there. I became injured by lifting a big weight on a strange angle above my head.Something popped in my left hip (I thought) From that time on after the surgery I mentioned here, I couldn't walk very long anymore and overtime I developed more and more pain. Partly by the failed surgery and trying to recover from that and of course also of the still existing pain that now seems to be back in all his forms. I now developed also abdominal constipation which I never had in my whole life (63 years of age now). For the treatment of the failed back surgery I do some mild Pilates but that is increasing my pain. I now think that is can be something from the SI joint on the left. But I am not sure. in the Netherlands there is not a special clinic as this might an underdiagnosed condition. Can someone tell me what to do about these symptoms and ask for what kind of treatment in the hospital I have to ask for? CT scan or MRI or injections to find out whether this is the biggest issue with my back? I also have problems with sitting for more than half an hour.
I am desperate.
