Rating Feedback for Dr. Filler (1223560)
I am writing because I am in the same exact situation. After an anterior lumbar fusion, I have severe nerve pain in my legs and can barely stand or walk much. The surgery was at L5/S1 and the guess is that I have an impingement in that area, although, just like yourself, it is not showing on an MRI. (I've had numerous injections and the nerve stimulator trial). Dr. Filler seems to be my only hope. (I hope I can come up with the funds and the dog and pony show nonsense).
Can you please tell me exactly what nerve source was causing your problem and what type of surgery they did to correct it?
I would really appreciate your response, thanks a million!
