L5/S1 Excricuating and so frustrated!



  • Good luck at your appt on Monday and if you have to have emergency surgery. I hope they do something soon to help alleviate the pain you are in. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep us posted.
  • Thank you. I had surgery on Wednesday, and am relieved of the leg pain. I still have drop foot and cannot articulate right ankle, cannot push up on ball of foot. Can do so fine on left side. Knee also feels sort of disconnected, but not to extent as foot. I expect some improvement with this but believe there will be a permanent loss of dexterity and range of motion in right foot/leg. I can live with that, so long as that excruciating pain is gone! So relieved.

  • I'm so happy you got your surgery! There was nothing like waking up in PACU and realizing that pain is GONE! Just take it easy, take your pain meds, and work on healing! :)
