Back Problems Board Index

I am 29 years old and a police officer in nyc, while i was at work my vehicle was hit by a tractor trailer. Due to this accident my lumbar spine was injured with a disc herniation at the level of l5-s1 as well as other disc bulges ranking from minimal to moderate . Due to this herniation i had spinal stenosis and s1 nerve root compression. Symptoms were right leg pain form butt to foot and numbness to leg. I had a chiropractor working on my back and it was going no were, i made the determination to see a neurosurgeon. After running tests and looking at the mri i had taken it was determined that surgery was the only option. He preformed a intralaminar hemilaminectomy, foraminotomy of the exiting s1 nerve root, medial facetectomy, excision of the herniated nucleus pulposus and external neurolysis for the exiting nerve root. 2 weeks passed and i sat down immediately following sitting down numbness pain returned strong to the area again. Another mri was done relieving a re-current herniation. 3 weeks later the same surgery was preformed again, i am interested to know if this is a injury to my back that will cause issues or further problems if i go back to working as a cop in new york city.
