Having severe pain, especially when sitting, in right hip, extending down into leg, been put on melodicam, and physical therapy, mobic relieves, hard to drive or sit comfortable without pain, have only 1 kidney, am concerned about medication. Nothing seems to be helping, please advise.
I think I would see a neurosurgeon and see if there was anything that could be done. Or at least what you should not do. also a pain management dr would be good. I'm not sure an nsaid is what is going to help you. Your problem isn't from inflammation its from a disc causing your nerves to be pinched. As long as your one kidney is in good shape, it shouldn't be a problem only having one.
I too think you should see a neurosurgeon or a orthopedic surgeon that specializes in the spine. I had a 4 level lumbar fusion so I understand your pain. The medicine your on is for inflammation not pain so I'd do this sooner than later because it sounds that you already have done what you can & now need a specialized doctor.
Good luck & God Bless you
