After getting a new MRI done last week, the report does not show anything new that could cause me the residual pain - no scar tissue, hardware is in tact, no new herniation, etc. The physiatrist's office called to inform me about the MRI and asked if I had an EMG done in the past. I never had it done, because I already knew that I needed surgery due to bladder issues and feet numbness. So the question is: Do I even bother getting an EMG done or do I just deal with finding the best way to manage this pain? Will the EMG testing be worth the discomfort, since I already had the surgery and things are not resolved? How accurate is the EMG test?
