L5 S1 nerve impingement.

I will never know if back surgery could of helped the pain down my leg and foot. It seems as though my left leg is getting weaker.
I was silly enough to think that I would have my intrathecal pain pump by now. I left a very upsetting message to the implant scheduler on Fri. At least they could have gotten back to me to tell me some thing! I have not heard a thing in over a month.
. It does not take a month for ins . approval. All I need is a date for the implant.,I need to keep reminding myself of what I am grateful for. . . Sometimes it is difficult. Besides that,I dropped a stainless steel saute pan on my big toe today. OUCH! Gotta keep smiling and hoping.
Surgery Jan.05 2011 TG with Dr Antalok. Dr.Chambi May of 2012 showed injury from a fall on back, 11 years ago. My piriformis muscle caused a large amount of fibrosis .My sciatic nerve was growing through the piriformis muscle which caused a bifid p.muscle. . Dr Chambi decompressed the sciatic,pudendal,pfcn ,and peroneal nerves. I hope to have a nuerostimulator put in to help with the sciatic pain that never goes away. Most days are better with the pudendal if I do not sit at all.

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.
