Hello everyone :H :H .
Well, I went to another neurosergon yesterday, and I must add that he was very nice =D> . He was nothing like the one I had seen prior. He did get some reports from the other neurosergon, and commented on them. I guess that the other one wanted me to get a myleogram(sp.)? Is this like a discogram?
I also commented on the fact that the other doc thought that I had problems with my hips, and he checked me, did different tests that he does and said I have nothing going on with my hips.
Well, on to the difficult part :T . He said that there is no way that I am a canidate for the microdiscotomy surgery where they go in, and take a peice of my disk out. He said it would not do any good for me. He said that my mri looks great except for L5 S1. He doesnt understand why I have so much pain going down both legs all the way to the feet. I guess maybe that is why I need antother test?! :?
I guess that if I were just having pain down the back of my left leg, along with the back pain that I would be a canidate for the micro. So, here we go on a roller coaster. I told him how much pain I am in, where it is, where it goes, ect.
He asked me everything that I have done to get my back better, told him of the injections, discogram, Idet. Well, we got on the Idet, and he told me that he would have never let me go through that. It just doesn't work ~X( ~X( . Great!!!!! All that pain and crap for nothing.
Anyway, he doesnt advise anymore injections, at all. He is referring me to a orthepedic surgeon in Burlington VT. He was telling me that there is a surgery where they can go through my stomach, and seperate my bones in my back, and fill in the disk. Not sure what all of that is?!
I am so frustrated, I feel like I have to make a big point that I AM IN PAIN. :''( . He also wants me to go through this therapy thing where they do all different tests to see what I can, and can't do?! That is outpatient, and that is going to get very costly(comp is not paying me, I guess we will see if they can help with the costs of all of this).
So, as we can see, I have degeneration, and a herniation along with disk tear. Why do I have soooooooooooo much pain??? :T :T .
Sorry to carry on, just so tired of all of this :S .
