Herniated discs and pelvic pain
I am new to the forum and just had discectomy a month ago on L4L5 level. I am writing due to the bizarre nature of my symptoms and would like to ask what do u guys think about all this. Presurgery I had leg pain and pelvic pain in form of painful urination and urinary frequency as well as severe vaginal burning, all of that located only on the left side. Needless to say I haven't had sex in 3,5 years now.
Since the surgery the bladder is doing better although there is still some pain but bearable, leg is doing better but still some burning pain where it used to hurt bad.
My neurosurgeon told me that some things may never recover, so I wanted to ask has anybody had similar symptoms and how are u coping with that. I am pretty depressed over the fact that I can't have sex, even simple vaginal exam is atrocious.
Other than this I have DDD on l5-s1and a mild case of bulging, somewhat severe thoracic scoliosis but luckily no back pain. I am 29.
Thanks so much for any input you might provide.
