Laminectomy about 6, and Diskectomy about 5 years ago. Have constant battle with it becoming sore and stiff. 5 days ago, though my conventional treatments did'nt work. I can only walk bent over almost 90 degrees. If I try to straighten upright my thigh and knee cramps up severely. Almost all of my knee is going numb. I only get the sciatia nerve when I'm driving over an hour. Have been to doctor who gave Soma,Valium,Oxycodone, Flexeril, and Ibuprofen. I don't like flying this high, can't go to work, and am practically bed ridden.
