Hi, I just got home from a second opinion. Long story shorter, I had a L5/S1 microdisc/hemilam 04/09 for pain in right leg. Was fine for two months and started getting sciatica on left side! Have tried ALEVE, Naproxen, Celebrex, ESI's to no avail. Have had two mri's, CT scan, EMG and Bone Scan. Both NS's say there is nothing visible on mri's showing impingment of nerve. Thye are saying I can either live with it or get a discogram and that will probably show a "bad disc". In which case, I would get a "minimally invasive level one fusion. The fusion word scares me. At this point, I think I'll live with it for a while. Any ideas or experiences?
