I have had fusion of level S1 - L4 several years ago. Although I have had continuing issues since, just recently they have worsened. I have had Myleogram, two EMG's, left leg pain to the point that in the mornings it takes over an hour to be able to get up and walk without falling. Results indicate EMG in September left leg modest reduction and recruitment in the tibialis anterior. Evidence of a chronic left L5 and Left S1 radiculppathy, while no evidence of active denervation at this time and the changes appear chronic. The second in January "mildly reduced recruitment confined to the left tibialis with chronic left L5 radiculopathy. without active denervation. The myelogram showed slight lumbar curve convex left, retrolisthesis of L3 on L4 and moderate broad-based bulging of L3 on L4 with moderate spinal canal narrowing.
I meet with my neurosurgeon in one week, not sure what the above means or what he is going to tell me. My question is has anyone out there had this happen? Any thoughts on if this is a surgery thing or not. I have had way to many injections in the past 6 months without any relief, this includes PT. Thoughts welcome.
