I was just wondering if anyone could inform me about my situation. I went in for lumbar epidural injections today and the doctor told me something that I'm having trouble understanding. He told me that the blocks at L5-S1 are basically smushed together and touching, which is pinching the nerves and causing a lot of pain. I had a microdiscectomy in January, 2013, so I'm thinking that removing that part of the disc caused the blocks around the space of the disc to come together. Has anyone else had this? Can anyone tell me the treatment options? I can't get into my neurologist for another few weeks still, so I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what is in store for me.
Thanks for reading! All replies are appreciated.
