I had a micro-diskecktomy in February 2012 on L5-S1. Recently I've had very bad pain in my lower back, hips, butt and legs.
I had an MRI done yesterday:
"Left central disc herniation at L5-S1 with mass effect on the left S1 nerve root. If clinically desired a contrast-enhanced examination can be obtained to better differentiate the disc herniation from adjacent granulation tissue. Broad-based central disc herniation at L5 4-L5 with moderate bilateral subarticular recess stenosis."
What do you think will be recommended by my doctor for this??
