Hello, Sorry to hear this. It's clear that you have had no relief from your symptoms following surgery.l had a look at your MRI report. Unfortunately, the MRI is a plain MRI without contrast.Contrast shows scaring around the nerve which might be one cause of your symptoms. The other possible cause of your symptoms may be non-healing of the L5S1 segment causing excessive motion (pseudarthrosis).This problem is best detected with a CT scan of your lumbar spine. Once the exact cause of your pain is determined then correct treatment can be started. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
