Check out the Laser Spine Institute...lsi.com......they do laser surgery.....5 days to no pain....Good luck. I plan on having surgery in July for a synovial cyst that has actually grown inside my spinal column in lower lumbar L4 and L5 so I feel your siuation, my right leg does not function, toes numb, can't move them because the cyst is pressing on the nerves in spinal column that controls walking function...good luck, and I wish you well.
