: : Okay, this is really weird. I have had three surgeries at L5-S1. The pain was in my left leg with numbness, tingling, pain and spasms. The last couple of months I have been having pain on the right. My rear end hurts and my back. So far, my right leg feels okay, but this is strange. Is it just sympathy pain? I do not think I will be able to live through another surgery. I wouldn't consider it anyway. Does anyone have a similar story? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

: Lori,

: You aren't crazy as of yet...LOL :o) It sounds like you have a bi-lateral herniation at the present time if you are having problems on both sides that switch from time to time. This may be on the same level you have had worked on or possibly a new level. I would suggest that you go to your doc and get an MRI to clarify things for sure.

: Please take the time to look at my posting that is entitled "Upcoming Spinal Fusion & SCARED!!!!" I am getting ready to have a fusion and have had three prior surgeries at L5-S1,L4-L5, and L3-L4.

: I am truly scared to death, and am not sure I can truly go through with it. If I do not I am facing paralysis and this is not an option to me. My thoughts and prayers are with you that everthing will be OK!!!!! :o)

: Over the next month or so before my surgery on 3/7/2000 I am going to get a website together for all of us that suffer from similar spinal disorders that will also have a Message/Discussion Board, Chat Room, Guest Book, Links Page as well as many other features.

: I feel inspired right now because of the responses I have received from people to the posting I have up now. I thank everyone who has written me and I think we need a GOOD forum where we can call home and get some answers and ask questons. I have been all over the net trying to find a good forum and haven't truy found one that is exactly what we all need. THIS discusson board is great and one of the best I have found!!!!

: If you would like to take part or have any input, information or professional links that can enhance the site, PLEASE email me Pokemonlunatic@aol.com. Any and all ideas will be considered and appreciated. I should have a skeleton site up within 2 weeks or so and will spread the URL as soon as it is available.

: God Bless All,

Thanks Steve!! I sent you an e-mail and received your response. I think a web site is a great idea. I am inspired by the people who continue to post their stories here. Thanks for your help.
Lori
