Here is a bit of history. I had my first back surgery at 18 yrs old, a lumbar discectomy and a second surgery in 2004 for scar tissue and another bulging disk.
Since Nov. 2012 I have had cronic pain in my lower back and down both my legs along with tingling. I went to see the orthopedic surgeon that operated on me in 2004 and he did an X-ray. He didn't review my results with me and when I asked him what the results were, he stated that I had a chip in my L4 & L5. He also said that I need an MRI with idoine.
Anyone know what that means? Does he mean fracture on my L4 & L5? I think that I may need fusion as this will be my third surgery. Please help. I am concerned and have no idea what to think anymore?
Thank you in advance.
