MBB 2 weeks ago, both nature of & intensity of pain radically different immediately after procedure. Then, about a week after procedure, pain migrated from lower back to right buttock & upper leg. Excruciating, I in house am crawling; outside, using a cane, must stop every few minutes or so or pain becomes too much too handle.

Am told that it's not likely (really?!!!) anything with procedure went wrong. Proposed solution to pain is a scheduled cortisone epidural.

However, wondering if something has gone badly wrong. In meantime, getting by on two 325/5 norcos ea 4 hrs, feeling like a zombie.

Comments & suggestions welcome.
