I am sorry you have pain into your right thigh

prior back surgery can sometimes help with back pain, and sometimes it doesn't and scar tissue and nerves can still be pressed on in your back which can radiate down into your legs

implanted electrical spinal stimulators can help decrease back pain and pain which radiates into your legs in some patients.

nerve pain medications like neurontin or lyrica can help in some patients as well.

let me know if you have questions.
