Hi all. I have quite a few threads going but a quick rundown: Male, 32. Back pain led to sciatica. Chiro, then ESI's, then MicroD sept 6th. So far so good on recovery. I had my post-op appt today and there are some pretty wild findings. If anyone has heard of this before please let me know. Im gonna go off the report so its gonna get wordy.
Other unique findings were that the patient had a conjoint nerve root at S1 in that there were 2 nerves that were exiting th S1 neuroforamen that was medial to the S1 pedicle.
Another unique finding was that in addition to the conjoint nerve root & the other 2 nerve fibers & 2 nerve structures S1 neuroforamen, there was a very low and transverse takeoff of the L5 nerve root on the left.
It also says later in the PROCEDURE section... the nerve roots then became somewhat more mobile but still did not have excellent mobility due to the fact that they are conjoint.
Anybody ever heard anything like this???
L5S1 REMOVED herniation. Years of pain & compression. Microdiscectomy complete!! Trying to be super smart & safe with recovery!
