I went back to my doctor and he noted that I still have some strength in my toes, so he is hopeful that I just irritated the nerves (as opposed to rupturing again). So he put me on a steroid pack and up'ed my pain meds. I just finished my last steroid this morning and I can say they didn't help. I still have a sharp pain in my left leg, and I've lost feeling and strength again in my left foot, both signs of disc material pushing on the nerves.
Tonight I have another MRI scheduled and I visit my doctor on Wednesday for him to read them. This might sound strange, but I actually hope I ruptured again. Why? Because that will explain the pain I am in. If I didn't rupture, than I am very concerned why I am in so much pain. It's been long enough since the surgery for the post-surgical pain to subside. And the post surgery pain felt different than this. So if I ruptured (again), it explains everything and I can get it fixed and begin recovery (again).
