I had a prolapsed disc L5/S1 i n 2012 and had a microdisceptomy.Everything was fine and I went back to work but towards the end of the year I started to get pains at the bottom of my back and down my left leg.With me being a hgv. tanker driver this just got worse.I was taking tramadol which helped for a while but I ended up collapsing one day after getting out of my cab.My gp sent me for another mri scan which showed another prolapsed disc L5/S1 the same as last time. So I had another operation everything went fine, I was do my exercises and physio.Then 2 weeks later everything started to get worse than ever.I was getting pains in my left leg and back which got worse the more tried to walk.Now 10 months later I spend most of my time in bed as now I get pain in both legs.My gp sent me for another mri and says he's not sure if I need time or another operation. My worry now is although I am suffering with chronic pain.He has put me on paracetamol, diclofenic, gabapentin and tramadol.If I do have another operation and it gets worse I don't think I could cope with any more pain.Has anyone else had this problem?.Sorry for the long post.
