It's been almost 7 weeks since microdiscectomy @L4-L5
. I've been having problems..(thanks to all those who responded to my previous posts).
Does anyone know if it's easy to differentiate between scar tissue and a re-hernaition? My pre-op MRI looked like my disc was "blowing a balloon." Massive herniation. I would think scar tissue would look different on an MRI.
I'll be getting a contrast MRI. Does anyone know about the injection? Is it a simple needle or the whole IV drip thing?
Stay cool spineys!
