Discectomy L4 L5 three months ago. I had almost no leg pain after surgery. Last week severe pain came back down my leg could this be nerve damage?
Nerve pain: You need to see your spine surgeon again. It is most likely nerve irritation, that could be treated with an epidural injection and conservative care. But, it could be a re-herniation of your disc. Important to rule-out new neurological changes. Your surgeon might decide to get a new MRI after they perform a physical exam. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Have chiari and had decompression surgery duraplasty lamimectomy of c1 and C2 14 months ago I was in a car accident 23 days ago constant nausea why?
Check with your sur-: geon to ensure nothing serious is going on from the neck point of view. Keep him informed. Nausea could be from medication, like strong pain meds, you might be on. If stopping or changing meds do not help, I would certainly have the PCP check you out. Some abdominal issue, like Gallbladder or even a renal problem, UTi, which are fairly common, might b present. Good Luck. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with BPPV 6 years ago.it finally settled down for like 8 months without vertigo. Now I've had it 6 times in the last 2 weeks? Why?
Recurrence is common: There is about a 50% recurrence rate of this problem. How did you resolve the first bout?

You can simply repeat whatever you did in the first place. ...Read more
Operated on for herniated disk L5-S1 3 months ago. 1 month ago had pain again. MRI not conclusive: fibrosis or recurrence ¿how and when can I now?
Response: Not fully clear to me, what you are asking, but will respond generically. If you do scar or develop post-op arachnoiditis, tends to start at 3-4 months, and that may explain your symptoms. You might benefit from injections, and a pain management specialist may be very helpful. Physical therapy and exercise might be a marvelous option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

6 months ago i had my baby with C-section and spinal block , ever since I have terrible back pain , my lower body went once like my top is to heavy !
Too many variables: Typically, a spinal block is performed well below the spinal cord. The spinal cord ends at the level of l1. The spinal blocks are typically performed below l3. It is very unlikely the spinal injection is a direct cause of your symptoms. The more likely cause may well be the position you are in during the procedure. After a spinal block, you can't feel your position so you usually don't move. ...Read more
I have serve back pain 2 months after back surgery. I had L5 and s1 disc removed. Now I'm in worse pain then before. Is this normal?
Back pain: Not normal but a common problem. After the herniated disc is removed, a recurrent disc or collapse of the disc space can cause new back and leg pain. This can lead to a repeat of the nonoperative measures such as physical therapy and cortisone injections. A back brace may help. Emotionally it is very deflating because you feel that you are back at the beginning of the process. It will get better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
