Help, the leg pain is horrible. I had a discectomy on L5S1 in Dec.08, feel great for 2 months, then the pain returned ,worst than before, tried epi's, no luck, repeated in May 08, had physical therapy, much better but not 100%, returned to work in Sept 08, then Jan 09 pain returned and each week getting worst,Off work again, (am MED TECH in busy oncology lab) Do not do well on any type codiene. I am on Ultram, tylenol, 800 ibuoprofen, and this week Nuerosurgeon put me on a Medrol Pack. MRI on Tues., but pretty sure that disc is on S1 nerve again.This nerve pain is horrible, flat on my back again. Do I go for fusion or another discectomy. Any feedback?
