Hi Snowfrog. If you are having problems with bowel/bladder, call your doc ASAP. This may require immediate surgery. Don't mean to scare you, but I've read this everywhere and my doc's always warned me of this so... Let us know how you make out. ~Daubie
Car Accident 2/2/02
Herniated disc L5/S1
Epidurals x3, PT 4 mos, some relief, but constant foot pain and numbness continued
9/5/03 still have foot pain and numbness but recovered fine from surgery
1/19/04 I am 7 mos post op. I still have the same foot pain as before surgery. Doc agrees it is probably permanent nerve damage. Started neurontin this week. Still glad I had the surgery though!
