I fell from a tree in 2009 and MRI showed that I had central disc prolapse in L5-S1 with annular tear. I was given some medicines and got better in some weeks. Then in 2012 again I felt the same pain it went down to my legs and was very painful. MRI showed same thing disc bulge at L5-S1 and L4-L5 after taking medicines i became fine again.
Now again I am in same condition worse actually. Mri on 17/1/15 showed severe bulge at L5-S1 and L4-L5, my doctor gave me an epidural injection and the sciatica became fine, but i have developed some strange feeling in the saddle area, it feels weird. All the neurosurgeon tells me or surgery but my doc is a orthosurgeon and is strictly against the surgery. He says that when we cut the disc it will grow back again in some 5-7 years and I will be in same situation. Is it true?
I feel weird down there but if i pinch i can feel it. Can I have Cauda Equina Syndrome? I am fearing for it.
