2 back surgeries for pinched nerves
Hi there...I am new here and my first time posting, so hopefully I am posting in the right place!
I have had 2 surgeries (2004 and 2007) for pinched nerves in my back. I had excruciating leg pain both times and the MRI showed such a mess that both times my surgery was scheduled for the very next day after seeing the surgeon. He said that if this happens again, I would have to have a fusion.
Just this weekend I started getting that familiar twinge of pain starting in my thigh and I have started to panic. I absolutely do not want to have to have a fusion or any more surgeries. Does anyone have any suggestions? Will walking/stretching help anything or if the leg pain has already started, is it too late?
I am now 26 and really don't want to have another surgery while I am so young. Thanks for any input that any one can offer!
