Jennifer: This is so helpful. I didn’t mention that I also have stenosis at L1-L3 just not quite as bad as L4-5. They would do a laminectomy of those levels as well. Hence, the lumbar plexus complex you mentioned makes sense as I also have constant genitourinary pain and that is a nerve in the complex. I also have a history of referred pain in other instances. I do not have surgery scheduled yet. The neurosurgeon want to review the results of an upcoming EMG on my left leg. I have left knee weakness 9 months post-op TKR which could also be caused by the lumbar issues. I’m going to raise the lumbar complex and referred pain suggestions up to the neurosurgeon; I feel confident that he will consider. I’ve had other consults who wanted to do surgery and really didn’t address the nerve pain; the current neurosurgeon is concerned. Very glad your problems were eliminated with surgery.
