I have been diagnosed with AA from a 1992 microlumbar discetomy at L4-L5. Since I have had a 360 degree fusion and cadaver bone with hardware at L4-L5, L5-S1 in 1995. In 1999 I had the hardware removed. I just received the results of the latest MRI and my pain doctor told me that I have fluid deposits on both sides of my spine in the lumbar region. Like fluid "bags" hanging off the side of the spine. He said it is very unusual to have these 10 years post op. I have an appointment to see a neurosurgeon and I can feel them wanting to go in again to do work. I was wondering has anyone else had a similar diagnosis or heard of a similar situation.
