I just returned from a 2nd opinion Nerosurgeon visit. He did a complete exam nothing compared to the one I visited the first time. He said that I need to have a Lumbar Laminectomy (hope I spelled it correctly. It would be open back surgery because he said he can see everything.
I am so fustrated and dont know what to do. My pain started 3 weeks ago with severe leg pain that has caused me severe leg pain after walking 2-3 minutes my leg starts dragging after that, unable to feel my big toe and the top of the foot, severe weakness.
I dont know what to so I've tried Accu with no relief scared to see a Chiro so I don't even know about trying to try ESI's .
He asked my why I waited. My answer was I'm trying to heal on my own. I can't go any longer with this pain but I'm not sure if I'm doing the right decision since I'm in pain.
