Well I went for my 5 month post op visit Monday. I was aggravated when I left there. I usually see one PA but this time I saw another one. Last time I saw him he didn't have a clue what he was talking about. All he did for me after a reherniation was told me to take Ibuprofen otc. I had to mention another epidural. I wouldn't be there if Ibuprofen otc would have helped me. I would defiately not have had surgery thats for sure. Now this time my diagnosis is unknown but this PA thinks there is some free floating disc material that he didn't get during surgery. The last PA I saw last month said my pain is "discogenic" from degenerative disc disease. So which one is it? Do you see where I am getting aggravated now? Well the only good thing that came out of this visit is that he ordered another MRI. I am going to have the drs I work for "pain manangement anthesiologist" review my MRI. I am supposed to go back and see the surgeon on Monday. I don't know what to do. It's just aggravating not knowing.
