    I had L3/L4/L5/S1 fusion with instrumentation in 2015 and it has made a little bit of improvement ( about 25%) but since the surgery 3 years down the line I still have left leg numbness, severe sciatica pain in both ankles and still have back and buttock pain.

    I'm on the same medication as before the surgery and now I'm struggling to keep working but needs must.
    I'm attending pain clinic once a fortnight and suffering from chronic pain syndrome.
