I apologize already for my English, I am Italian.
Hi everyone, I'm a 19-year-old boy who underwent discectomy and laminectony on October 15, 2018, 7 months ago. My "healing" period was long enough but at the end I already felt that the pain remained. The neurosurgeon advised me to go to an osteopath (which did not solve anything) and to proceed with an MRI. The resonance highlighted
"Reduction of lumbar lordosis physiology.
Initial signs of spondylosis.
The width of the spinal canal appears to be wide at the lower limits of the norm in disk dehydration phenomena in L5-S1.
In L4-L5 there is a wide disc protrusion with a focal posterior-paramedian prevalence Sn which determines a modest imprint on the dural sac.
In L5-S1 results of Interlaminotomy Sn with Microdiscectomy; at this level we can appreciate the presence of a modest amount of tissue that affects the lateral recess Sn and that shows enchancement after mdc ev in reaction to reactive-scarring phenomena. Cone medullar in the seat and to adjust volume and signal ".
After that I did the pain therapy, with epidurals and radiofrequencies at the facet joints, needless to say they have no effect.
I describe my pain: when I'm sitting / lying just over a few muinutes my left leg hurts, under the buttock up to the calf. When I wake up in the morning it hurts my neck, and when I stretch my arms they hurt and tingle. The most severe pain came to me after the operation and emerged when I bent my upper back and, at that moment, it hurt my leg, as if something were touching my nerve. I'm desperate and I don't know how to proceed.
