So in January 2016 i had my microdisectomy. All went well. Due to the severity that my root nerve was crushed, i was told it would be a year before i know how i will be. After 6 months i began to get pain again. This has slowly gotten worse and in jan my GP agreed we should have an MRI scan as ive gone from taking co-dydramol once or twice a week to twice a day!
The scan showed (As far as i can remember off the top of my head!)
L5/S1 has a tear (the one they operated on!).
A fragment of disc is floating around.
L4/L5 is bulging towards the spinal cord and the disc above is bulging outwards.
The Radiaology department/consultant has recommended i now have a contrast MRI. I have never had one before and they didnt do one last time so why now? How does it help? Typically i recieved the letter for the MRI yesterday and its on my birthday next week!
