I had a severe rupture of L4/L5 repaired on December 29th. Up until a week ago I was very happy with the results. All of my right leg pain that I had for years was gone and the recovery was on schedule. Within the last week I have been having severe, I mean severe left leg pain that is radiating from my hip all the way to my foot. It is a relentless, all day pain that is worse than the problems I had originally.
I have since had a MRI and have scheduled an appointment with the surgeon to review it. Has anyone had this same expereince. I know that once you have one back surgery the likely hood of another one increases, but dang this is quick.
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
