hello all. I am a new member, thank you. I recently had a l4-l5 fusion, 4 months ago, and am still in tremendous amount of pain, I still even have the weakness, pain, and tingling going down my right leg. My pain management doctor says I should be getting better, the surgeon says to wait 8-10 months after the fusion as fully developed... has anyone else went threw this? I’m stuck between 2 different doctors telling me 2 different things and it seems like no one understands. I also have herniated discs at l3-l4, and l5-s1. I have a few annular tears according to my MRI but according to my surgeon those where no addressed because they are not the source of pain.
