No just a repeat of the spine MRI which did not show anything different from the first time.
I believe that the Fermor nerve was been damaged during the operation because the pain is 24/7 and is exactly the same as when I came round from the op. . If I press into the top of my leg/groin, the pain exacerbates and travels down the leg to my foot.
When lying down I cannot raise my right leg at all.
The Consultant has confirmed that it could not be the hip because he injected anesthetic into the joint and the pain remained. He believes it to be nerve related and suggested going back to the Pain Team who put the injection into my back last year. I do not want to go full circle again as this did not work.
Thank you for your advice. It is imperative that I make the correct choice to move forward as my Insurance company will not cover me any more. It has been a year and has cost them £14,000 and me £2,000 in contributions and still there is no definitive answer or resolution. I am not in a position to fund on-going treatment so have to get it right! I hope you understand.
I have no quality of life as I am in constant pain and my leg buckles with no warning and I fall to the ground I currently have six stitches in my hand from the fall last week.... Desperate us putting it mildly!!!
Can I just be sure, do you have any other suggestions?
OK thank you.
