I'm a 32 year old Female and back in December of 2014 I had a Microdisectomy and a laminectomy (L4-L5).. I was doing ok until about 12 weeks after the surgery. My back started bothering me again so I went to another dr. (i left previous surgeon after he pushed a personal injury attorney on me numerous times) and they sent me for an MRI. They saw that my disks were herniated again (small herniations) and that I had an abnormally amount of scar tissue pushing on my nerve. They sent me for an epidural and i felt better! Not 100% but definitely about 50%. My pain doctor suggested I go for another epdiural to possibly push that 50% even higher. I did it and i was good for about a week and then everything got much worse. It's been about 2 weeks of my back and butt hurting and obviously nerve pain running down my leg and into my foot again. I went back to my doctor and he basically wants to repeat the surgery!! Wants to remove the scar tissue and a small piece of my bone that's left to access the disk and remove the part of the disk that pushing on the nerve. I'm so upset!! I do love and trust my new doctor but I do want to get a second opinion before i move forward. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this before?
I'm anxious to hear other stories or suggestions!
