~X( Hi! my name is Cindy, I first would like to know if anyone can explain what multi-level facet hypertrophy is? My doc has explained it to me but I still don't understand :?? I am pretty sure the Lumbar lordotic straightening &cervical lordotic straightening is straightening of the spine, neck or spinal canal... please correct me if I am wrong.
I had laser surgery 1 1/2 years ago, they shrunk the L5-S1 disk and burned the nerve endings for the sciatic. I was still having pain but it shot into my back which was much better and that was instant relief from the sciatic!!
Recently I started to have shooting pain from the sciatic down to the my buttock, it has not started shooting down my leg...yet. Does anyone know if after having the nerve endings burned is it possible for them to grow back?
