Agonizing pain nine years after discectomy
I had a discectomy in 2006 about three months ago I started getting the worst pasin I have ever felt in my life going from my back down through my butt cheek extending the whole way down the back of my left leg.my MRI shows scar tissue and the disc between l5 and s1 being almost completely gone. I've never felt pain like this and still have not gotten a clear answer to what's causing the pain.I'm at a loss here I thought scar tissue would of created pain much before the nine yes it has been. Any ideas what could be causing the this types of pain and why it took so long to start or what I can do to help the pain. I can not sit stand or lay in any position for too long I can not raise my leg very high or extend it very far without excruciating pain any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
