I am so sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. I too had to have 2 surgeries close to eachother due to a re-herniation. First I had a micro-d in June and had my second surgery (laminectomy) just in January. I am sorry to tell you but I feel 2 million times better. I am younger than you but my neurosuergon told me that if this last surgery didn't do the trick I was looking at a fusion. What has your DR told you about why you are experiencing nerve pain and leg weakness? Have they put you on any meds specifically for nerve pain like Lyrica or anything like that. Pain meds won't touch nerve pain. I would also worry about the leg weakness. I know you may have some residual nerve issues due to the surgery but you shouldn't be in that much pain. I would talk to the Dr again and see what he/she can do for you.
Wishing you much luck. Sorry to hear you are in such pain
