Mokita:

My diskogram with CT scan showed annular tears at L4-L5 and complete rupture of the disk at L5-S1, with surprisingly concordant pain at L4-L5 and non-concordant pain at L5-S1.

I considered IDET for a while, but ruled that out after doing a ton of reading about long recovery times and inconclusive clinical studies. Plus, my regular doctor, recommended against it in favor of the more benign nucleoplasty procedure.

I think that was a good choice for me.
