Back Problems board

Hey Mike,
Sorry to say this is a lot like my case and the surgeon today said that scar tissue can cause the same pain that you had pre-op. Scar tissue can also pinch the nerve and cause leg and foot pain. Unfortunately, another surgery may give you temporary relief but eventually you'd be back where you are now...more scar tissue. My doc just today is setting me up for an ESI and started me on Lyrica for nerve pain, may or may not help. Bummer....I know how you feel. I would not have had surgery had I known this.
