Hi all, l am new to this site and wondered if any of you have had experience of pain down your legs and had a nerve root block injection
I have a disc bulge at L5/S1 abutting both S1 nerve roots and have been in considerable pain for about 14 months.
On 25th November l had a nerve block procedure carried out at the hospital but the pain is just as bad and frequently keeps me awake at night.
I also have a schwannoma tumour at L3/4 but the consultant has decided not to do a biopsy or operate on it so he wants to watch and wait to see if there are any further symptoms in twelve months.
Regarding the disc bulge l was told that if the nerve block was successful l could have an operation called a decompression, but with the nerve block failure l am not sure where all this is going?
