I'm sorry to hear you are in such pain. Here is my story: L5/S1 rupture, laminectomy discectomy in March 2007. Reherniation in July 2008, second laminectomy/discectomy in August 2008. It has been almostn 13 weeks and I am in moren pain than before my first surgery. Had repeat MRI in October 2008. Showed annular tear nat L4/L5, grade I spondylisthesis atn L4/L5, moderately extensive post-op scarring around thecal sac and nerve roots, L5 sacralization. I do not know what half of this even means!! OS wants to hold off until February. It hurts, I know.
Have a good day!
