Re: L4/L5 Problem

I had herniation L 4-5 also. I do not know how to read the rest of your report. I was always advised to get a 2nd opinion when it comes to surgery, because it is a last resort. I went through physical therapy and epidurals first. This is the normal course of treatment before surgery. The PT helped with my pain, the epidurals did nothing but cause my symptoms to move from one leg to the other. My herniation was very large, I ended up having surgery only after 6 months of PT and 2 epidurals, and seeing 2 neuros. So I would suggest a 2nd opinion.

Re: L4/L5 Problem

You may want to post over on the Back Pain board as well as much of the discussion on this board is based on cervical spine problems.

If you have any foot symptoms, foot drop, etc you should be evaluated for immediate treatment. Very often that means some type of surgery to release whatever is causing the nerve in your back to be impinged and thus causing the foot problems. This can be a discectomy, fusion, etc. So ask your neurosurgeon and/or orthopedic spine surgeon to specify the exact surgery they are recommending and then seek to move forward quickly so that foot symptoms do not become permanent.

Re: L4/L5 Problem

Today I was in neuroclinic and the doctor said I need an operation. Looked at MRI and said that there is no other way of treatment, only surgery. He asked me whether I can stand on the toes and heel, how can I get the left leg and right foot as much.
I now plan on their own initiative to go to a 10 days on the fizicalnu therapy and swimming in the healing water.

Sorry for the problems with translation.
