See your surgeon: You have already had back surgery!? Already on lots of meds! how long since surgery? Back surgery is done to relieve these symptoms, but may yield disappointing results. It may take months to recover. Sometimes surgery makes back problems worse. Mri is of limited use. You need to spend some serious time with your surgeon.
