I went for a discogram last July and I wanted to ask some questions. My doctor had originally scheduled me for surgery in December then changed his mind and did a nucleoplasty. I feel that nothing has changed. I have numbness in both face, arms and legs with shooting pain. I also have burning in my neck.
I was looking at my MRI and these were the results.
On the sagittal views, there is low signal intensity contrast within the disc spaces at C3/4, C4/5 and C5/6 There is motion degradation on all sequences. No acute fracture or marrow-infiltrating lesion is seen.
C3/4 Nuclear contrast extending to the left posterior annulus
C4/5 Nuclear contrast extending to the right posterior annulus.
C5/6 Nuclear contrast extending to the right posterior annulus
He originally was going to do an ACDF at C3/4 and TDR at C4/5.
I am a little frustrated. What questions should I be asking him? I am seeing him again next week for an update.
