I had a l4-l5 discectomy in April. All my pain was in my right leg, but numbness in both, it's not been an easy journey, I was doing well though. Only recently I've been getting pain in my left leg, this is new to me. I am on 90mg of slow release morphine, 1,400mg of gabapentin a day already. I've been told to make an emergency appointment at the gp to request an mri. I am scared, so so scared. I was immobile before my surgery, so I have improved, I can't go back there. I have 3 damaged discs, only the 1 had herniated. I'm only 25, I shouldn't be going through this. I guess I'm just looking for words of encouragement, advice, your own stories.
