" alt=">:)" height="20" /> I mean is size important to the herniation? I have a small far right herniated disc and annular tear with disc material on the exiting S1 nerve.
I've been to two Ortho Drs. EMG showed normal and Neurologist referred me to Ortho. They both don't understand how I was having so much pain from a little herniation. Also with the opposite leg having sciatica.
I want another Ortho consult because it's been a year off work or should I just wait and see if Pain Management can help more?
I wonder why they couldn't measure this herniated disc rather than call it a far right small? Charry
