I had a discectomy twice for L4-L5 first, then the second after two weeks for L5-S1 in 2005. Immediately after the first surgery I faced new problems like urine and stool retention, perineal and scrotal numbness involving the posterior part of my penis. I also have posterior thigh numbness. I urinate with abdominal pressure and have pain in my right distal leg. I am still on Diclofenac 100 mg twice a day. Any suggestions?
