Hi all
I dont know yet about what kind of operation. I'll find out in a few days.
here is the few quetes taken from MRI result:
" Most significantly at L4-5 there is a new extruded disk herniation behind the left side of the L4 vertebral body emanating from this L4-5 level."
"New extruded disk herniation behend the left side of the L4 vertebral body. This is moderately large free fragment behind left side of L4. This appears to have emanated from the left lateral disk herniation at L4-5."

So, this is the main concern for me and it apears for the doctors as well. The biggest complain is I am limping and feel pain in left leg: burning sensations and needles in my leg.
What should I do....

One doctor want to do from 1 up to 3 epidural injections before sending to see Neurosurgeon for consultaion. I am aftraid that injections wont help and i just be more suffering.... May be I need to see Chiropractor to relieve pinched nerve, but that free fragment might prevent it... and How moderately large is that fragment. MRI report did not mention about specific size..

I'll be waiting for your comments.
