Injection dignosi

on August 2016 I had a S1 nerve root injection which was not successful, this was repeated on January 2017, with an nerve root injection at L4/L5, I spoke to the consultant this week who informed me there was nothing more he could do for me as they could not pinpoint the correct nerve for a new back operation at my lower back which runs down my left leg giving pain at the lower back, buttock, thigh, calf to ankle which is caused by 3 damaged disks 2 of which I previously had a discectomy for 5 years ago, any advice would be appreciated.
