First off I'm male, going to be 55 in August. History of Osteoarthritis (bone spur fixed in shoulder, 2 hip replacements, spinal stenosis).
The first laminectomy was in May of 2015, L4 and 5. The pain (Left leg) was 100% gone!! Awesome!
Late in 2018 it came back and I had a revision of the L4 and 5 AND added L2 and 3 and S1. Left leg again, Pain free 100%.
6 months now and the pain is back again almost as bad as the first time (can only stand for minutes before my left foot starts to get numb and then pins and needles. I ALSO have a very bad burning pain now starting just a little above the rear portion of my back right above the hip that shoots down my left cheek, behind my thigh and then down to my knee, covering the left half of my left leg (so, like from the middle part of the front to the middle part of the back). This burning pain is pretty much continuous from the moment I stand until I sit down.
If I bend really far forward I can get pain free and there is something that feels like a cool wave/breeze in my foot (more relief from pain and pins and needles).
The surgeries I've had were from a top rated clinic in the Akron, Ohio area.
I'd just like some input as to what may be going on before I can get back in to seeing my doctor again.
