I had a Discectomy (L5/S1) back in January 2007, but I have been in pain every since, for some reason the Op didn't work properly, I still have Sciatica down my left leg and in my bottom and my foot is totally numb.
I have had 2 Steriod Epidural Injections and a Nerve Root Block since then, and the pain still hasn't gone away. I am now waiting to go and have a Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (FLIP) done. Apparently I've been put on the Urgent List and the wait is 4-5 months :evil: can you believe it, I've already suffered 10 months of agony. I'm taking Fluoxetine, Tramadol, Amitriptylin, Indometacin, Paracetamol and now I'm on Morphine Patches. The last few days I have been having trouble going for a pee, I went to see my Doctor who asked for a urine sample to check for any infection, this came back normal so he's going to write to the Consultant and ask if I can be put to the top of the list. I'm not going to hold my breath!
I'm totally fed up with what has happened I just want to be back to normal again. I hope your feeling ok!
