Well here is another injection i can hang my hat on among many now to the s1 ! The confusion seems to be both injections helped going in to the periformis muscle with the previous injections but as the doctor knows does not realy mean its a periformis issue just yet,
Just because the injection helps kill off the pain for the sciatic nerve pain at the periformis region he feels does not mean its not from above it which some of the symptoms seems to be from the s1 of posibly being the worse nerve related issue,
Both injection helped same as this 1 to the S1 area not a disc issue but posibly nerve being agrivated as it exits from the S1 nerve root that passes through the bone opening,
If there was a 100% confirmation this is the issue causing nerve to get pissed off doctor says there is a simple surgery called not lami but forenotomy or something like that opening up making room for the nerve opening some of the bone for the s1 nerve,
Its clear to me no test is 100% and it becomes a guessing game to what is realy agrivating the nerve as movement shows it does get agrivated by any movement,
A scs i have clearly is not working on this nerve pain issue and instead of having surgery to remove it now makes no sense as i feel if they do decide to do surgery for either periformis releise or forenotomy or what ever the medical term is i feel can be done at the same time of scs removal !
If by some chance it turns out my issue was for the last 8 years periformis issue or S1 not the l4l5 they been going to town on after the ADR was implanted @l4l5
and later fused do to these symptoms !
I am going to make an appointment with every dr i seen the last 8 years and take that reflex hammer and hit them over the head with it just to see if anyone is at home !
I always said stop looking at the surgery area new pain is totaly diferent and lower then before the ADR surgery but last word is the doctors decision and we only have so much say so in the mater !
And yes i had my injection with no sedation ! Who the man now ! Lol.
