Received a discectomy, laminectomy. This was in 79. Then in 98 had a 4 hr. surg. removing scar tissue. I have spinal stenosis, and have had many physical therapy treatments. I'm in pain now in the groin area. The Doc. says it's muscle issue. Taking muscle relaxer, and pain med. slows the pain, but not completely.
