I just returned from the neuro. I brought him the MRI disc and the report. He came in the room and I said to him "How bad is it doc" He said, " There is nothing wrong and the MRI looks fine" end quote............I dont get it ! Then I had to show him what portion of my foot was numb, he went back and viewed the disc again, returned and said there MAY be a "slight" herniation. He said sometimes people w/large herniations have no pain and small herniations do have pain. To make a long story short, we agreed to an oral steroid for 6 days,if no relief , then injections in the O.R under mild sedation (cuz I get nervous&scared)....then if no relief perhaps a second Micro'd.........however, he said doing 1 the second time is more difficult than the first time...he didnt elaborate, Can someone please comment on this insanity?My back is killing me, I know there;s soomething wrong w/it. Should I get another opinion? Tomorrow, I have full intentions of calling the hospitals radiology dept to see what they say, Please respond with your opinions, cuz I'm dumbfounded !
