Pelvic pain and Siatica

I have such horrible pain in my groin and pelvic area and then the pain radiates down my legs. I do have compression at L5-S1 and nerve root hitting against L3-L4. I really do not want surgery. Can anyone tell me if they have ever experience this groin and leg pain? I was at one time considering the PED (percutaneous endoscopic disectomy) but have kind of put that on the back burner for now. Doctor wants to do discogram first to determine where the pain is coming from. It is sometimes very difficult to pull myself up from a chair at a restaurant after sitting so long. Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Re: Pelvic pain and Siatica

Discogram's a good idea...really gives you good info.

My personal problem was that all 3 causes of my pain were so close to each other that it was confounding my drs.

I have/had (IDET seems to be working to-date) an Annular Tear L3-4 (no radiation out from source), SI Joint pain (no clue what's causing that), and Sciatica (pinched by my Piriformis muscle and not a disc).

So, in a nutshell, go for the discogram...and get your drs to think "outside the box" if you're not finding out what the cause of your pain is.

Good luck, and please keep us posted!

Re: Pelvic pain and Siatica

Rampage is right, disography is certainly next.

I too have MAJOR deferred pain to my hip, pelvic & groin area. Tremendous pressure that gets worse as the day goes on.

Unsure what studies you've had but certainly surgery is something you may end up having to consider. If this is your 1st surgery I strongly reccomend the micro method rather than open if your a candidate.

Good Luck
and keep us posted
