I actually first joined this site back in February 09 with a slightly different 'login name' but I lost my password and exact name so I've had to re-register.
Back in February following an epidural for back pain here in the UK,I suffered excruciating pain straight after the so-called treatment.
I came across this site after my wife suggested I try to talk with people that have similar problems so here I am.
It's been 6 months since that epidural and I eventually got a follow up MRI scan done which seemed to show DDD,a prominent disc bulge and an annular tear.
I've since been to see a surgeon to see if I was suitable for an IDET and it appears he thinks not.
September 22nd 09 I have to travel 70 miles for a DISCOGRAM and I have to be there to book in at 07:30am.
Has anyone else had a this form of procedure to assess the next step?
If so,what was your outcome?
