HI all, As I posted the other day I fell and herniated the L5.I had a micro'd on this dsisc in April 09...this is what the MRI says..."Degenearation and invertebral disc L5-S-1 w/posterior annular fissure. Left paracentral disc herniation is seen extending into the left lateral epidural space impinging upon the proximal left s1 nerve root. There is a slight mass effect on the left lateral margin of the dural sac.
Impression: DDD W/Left paracentral disc herniation @ L-5 S-1 Causing mass effect on the thecal sac and proximal S1 nerve root....How bad is it? can anybody out there tell me please? I have a lotta pain, shooting into my butt area, left leg weak and numb...
