I have had 2 epidurals, both of which provided no relief. The second epidural was done on both sides at L5. I have radiating shooting pain to both butt to legs to feet. I get numbness in my feet. I am only 24, active healthy male. Now I have a hard time walking for any period of time. The doc said I would be a good candidate for surgery, and was going to talk to a surgeon. Now I have to wait. Any ideas of the kinds of surgery possible?
