Well, After 2 discectomy's, numerous injections, mri's, xrays, a short trip to a physical therapist (3x) my new neurosurgeon decided to get some blood work. Rhumatoid factor, lyme and HLA-B27... Well, it came back positive for the B27 test. Now I am scheduled with a rhumatologist (sp) monday the 21st.
needless to say with my current lumbar issue, DDD and now nearly bone on bone at l5/l4 i'm a bit freaked out. Do you think he will order new x-ray's, mri's or other tests? What should I expect on my first visit?
