Hi Everyone I had a emergency microdiscectomny and laminectomy last February after I became unable to walk or dress my lower half. I had before this epidurals and tender point injections and I have been on high morphine patches before and since as whilst the surgery enabled me to walk, I still suffer from chronic pain and severe sciatica. Following a recent Mri, I have been told I may require further surgery to either pin and plate my lower 3 vertebrae or have disc replacement. I really don't want further surgery as I am 29 but my pain and sciatica are almost at the same level they were before my operation. I don't know what to do next? Has anyone gone through anything similar?
