L5/S1 nerve root

Started by JohnK on 02/16/2019 8:14pm

New to spine universe. I’ve had 3 microdisectomys L5/S1 in the past 10 years. With each one I’ve had an increase in pain and numbness in my right foot: whenever I’m standing. When I stand my foot feels like if you smashed your finger with a hammer, then put a tight rubber band around it. I’ve also hAd numerous injections and tried several nerve pain drugs. Nothing has helped. Feeling very frustrated and hopeless.
