My husband just got the results of his MRI. It says he has a free fragmented disc extending into the left L3-L4 neural foramen which causes narrowing of the foramen and impresses on the exiting left nerve root. are any of you familiar with a fragmented disc and do you think he needs surgery?
If so, should he go to a back surgeon or a neurosurgeon?
How long is the recovery and when can he go back to work, drive, etc? Thanks
