Was supposed to have another MRI but, I told themm that the other Doctor had left metal fragments in my back. I have this on a DVD. So, they did x-rays to see. They claim that if I have metal in my back and MRI could be detrimental to me. They did not see any fragments. I talked to the redioligist and told him I was told I do have this, so ....long story short, I have to return next Fri w/DVD showing fragments.
I then went to see the Neuro. We discussed the Micro'd on the L-5.I told him I am scared ! He says that it could take up to 1-1/2 years for foot mumbness to go away, if at all and Hopefeully I will regain some leg strength. The objective though is to lessen leg pain.I am nervous as hell but have no choice I can't go on like this!
