Since July of 2011, I've had 2 back surgeries, different doctors in different states. Both surgeries have failed. The first surgery was done because my mri showed a server disc herniation at L5,S1 and I was experiencing extremely painful sciatica. I could barely walk, put on pants, bend over, etc. The neurosurgeon told me that my only option was surgery because the disc was pushing against my spine and pinching the sciatic nerve, he said if not I would've developed cauda equina syndrome. So I had the surgery and almost a year exactly I'm having a second surgery for spinal stenosis and L4,L5,S1 herniations. The doctor only fixed one of the 3 discs and now almost 2 years later I'm still in severe pain daily. Just recently my left leg feels like a burning pins and needles from the top of my hip down to my feet. I have had 6 epidural injections, 6 nerve root block injections, I've been on Percocet since 2011. I am so discouraged about my back and Leg pain I don't even know what to do anymore. Also I've lost 50 pounds so any helpful info would be appreciated.
