  • I had a Discectomy at L5-S1 on October 30th 2014. I am going to get a standing MRI tomorrow to figure out why I am in worse pain than before surgery. I am 16 weeks post op today. I am grateful that I did this surgery. I was given about a month of pain relief post surgery. The recovery has been a lot harder than I thought it would be! I pray that your recovery is going well!!!!

    Hi. I just had this surgery in November on l4-5. 4 months out now and my nerves are still tingling. This last week Ive had burning in the butt and back of legs. I keep thinking something is wrong, but Dr. Says its normal.
  • Are you in the US? If so where? I'm only asking because I want to know if standup MRIs are available throughout the country. I had a L4-5 Microdiscectomy in Sept 2014. And I have been in worse pain since. I had a repeat MRI(laying down) which showed scarring at the surgical site amd bulging above and below but my surgeon didn't feel that going back in would be approaite since my surgery wasn't as successful as we expected. Any help would be great. Thanks

  • I live in the US. I had to drive an hour and a half away from were I live to get the Standing MRI. The Standing MRI is in my Neurosurgeon's office. If you would like to know more feel free to PM me!!
