Hello to all. I was involved in an 80 mph car accident and have been in pain for last 3 months. My mri results said:
t6-t7 right paracentral protrusion which abuts the spinal chord on the right and slightly deviates it to the left and there is a t7-t8 central protrusion which abuts the ventral aspect of spinal chord with resulting mild flattening and without significant overall central stenosis. I also have a l4-l5 disk bulge and an l5-s1 small broad based central protrusion and hypertrophic changes with mild bilateral foraminal narrowing etc.Bottom line, I just got 1 thoracic injection and now Im in worse pain. Its a constant throbbing-electric pain around my shoulder blades and to the left of my back along with my buttucks and lower back being on fire and pain radiating down both my legs and calves. Therapy for last 6 weeks doesnt help. Does anyone think that surgery will be my only option for my injuries? God Bless and Thanks.
