Well, I had my tests today, "how was it" well like I told my hubby, it wasn't horrible, but if they were giving away free tickets, you wouldn't find me in line
Given the choice, I would skip it next time, that being said, the neurologist said he would run the numbers and give my surgeon a call probably tomorrow. His preliminary findings are nerve root "irritation" (no apparent demyliation(sp)of the nerve) at l5 and s1 slightly worse on the left then the right.
So it is still "coming from the spine". He also said that just because there was no "damage/irritation" found at other levels does not mean that there are not symptoms at those levels, just that the prognosis for healing would be better.
He feels it is radicular(sp) rather then neuropathy.
I have to call my surgeon tomorrow for my follow up appt or instructions.
On a side note, I have been having a lot of headaches/neck pain lately, is this common after lumbar surgery?
Thanks for the support,
I hope you all are healing or preparing peacefully.
God Bless and keep You,
