Had a Microdiscectomy in Jan 2010 and had not felt any change.
Managed to get another MRI scan done last month but have to wait till Sept to see the surgeon. My GP managed to get the results and called me in yesterday - I have re-herniated (Or poss, the surgeon did not remove enough.
I had a letter saying that he removed mostly "capsules?)
I now have to wait to see the surgeon again and hope he will do something soon.
I lost my job in June due to time off sick so am now in limbo until this is sorted!
My doc prescribed Diclofenac which do not help, so has now given Oxycodone + Naloxone, which I know is a form of morphine. Not to happy about this but took one last night when the pain is worse, and it was great!
Does anyone know what the capsual stuff means and anyone had a 2nd opp?
