[QUOTE=toddh64]I am 70 days post op and still have leg/ butt pain. I know that it happens, but I'm interested in hearing any other info others may have. It is difficult to be patient (as most of you know). I am interested in the "good" and "bad" info.
Sciatic pain set in 05/03
tried chiro/ pt/ shots/ vaxd & nothing helped
Hi Todd..... I had a Discectomy/Laminectomy at L5-S1 back on June 2, 04..... I still have back, butt, and leg pain... sometimes worse then before surgery... have had Epidural Injections...Myelogram, MRI's, EMG/NCV, Now they are talking about doing a Nerve Root Stimulator Implant... I was told that mine is most likely permenant nerve damage from the compression I had on the nerve before surgery....my sciatic pain started around December 2003.... Sorry this isnt the good info you are looking for... Hope yours turns out better... Good luck to you.
