On May 4 I had a discectomy on L5/S1, when I woke up I still had a lot of leg pain. Each day it increased by the next Monday I couldn't handle it anymore. I went into the hospital they MRI'd only to find out that L5/S1 had herniated again. On May 11 I had another discectomy, everything was going great until 6 weeks out. I woke up from a nap with a really tight back and terrible back pain. My doctors have been bouncing me around for a little while finally today they said they are worried about a possible infection!? Really, can this be possible an infection without a fever or other issues? Another MRI also shows the disc to be herniated again and a CT-Scan shows deteriation around the vertebrae. One doctor wants to do a fusion the other wants to try a Pro-Disc. Each day that goes by I hurt more and need more drugs. Any ideas on what my next step should be? Tired of games ready to get infront of the problem.
