Ongoing left leg/butt pain after microdisectomy! going crazy!!



  • Wish I could say I was doing better. Went in for my 2nd surgery on April 24th, Doctor said he found a pinched nerve on my left side of L5/S1 and he freed it. Checked the right side to make sure 1st surgeon who operated last year relieved all pressure off the right side and said it looked fine. I woke up, felt better, following day, took a walk, within 30 minutes all pain came back worse then ever. my right leg is the worse it has ever been (which got better after 1st surgery). left leg that this surgeon said he found the pinched nerve, is worse then before surgery. I also got 2 rods and 4 screws put in for stabalization. i'm 25 years old and at this point, im not sure if i can ever work or drive again if my legs dont get better. surgeon is extremely confused.

    im at the end of my rope here. i know i'll never be fine, but i try so hard to be positive, but i'm losing hope!!
