Since I was 16 years old I have dealt with severe lower back pain. I have done massage, PT, oral steroids, steroid injections, chiro treatments, and finally 3 months ago a lower lumber discectomy. Initially I was feeling pretty good and felt hopeful that this was the solution to my problems. Two weeks ago I began feeling some pain in my upper legs. I have been working with my PT to relive, two days ago i reherniated the same discs where I had surgery. I had an MRI with and without contrast to confirm this. I am now going back to my ortho surgeron on Tuesday to talk about the next option. WHAT IS THE NEXT OPTION!!! He is telling me possible more surgery of the same that I had before. I was hoping to hear from people with similar experiences and what they did. I am only 30 years old and feel pretty scared at what my future holds with these continuing problems. ~X( ~X(
