Hi I'm 37 years old I had a car accident 2 years ago that left me with a herniated lumber disc I had a microdiscectomy 6 months ago but 2 months after the surgery I started having pain on my right buttock I went to the doctor he gave me a steroid IM injection and the pain went away 2 months after the pain came back the doctor prescribed new pain medication and the pain went away I have been in constant right buttock and right leg pain since a month and a half ago nothing takes the pain away I have tried all kinds of different pain medications and I had another IM steroid injection and nothing works I went to the doctor last week begging for and MRI I had the MRI results today no herniation was shown only scar tissue. I' m very scared I can't sit down or walk due to the horrifying pain I can only get up from bed to go to the bathroom the rest of the day I have to be laying down with the electric heating pad on on my lower back/right buttock/right leg..Has anyone been through similar situation?Scar Tissue and Pain After Back Surgery
