[QUOTE=Keano16;4165605]IDET will not help your annular tear. You have chance of around 30-40% it will help. More after, IDET can cause more damage then relief.

For annular tears you have few options:
1. PLDD
2. Nucleoplasty coblation
3. SED with dr. Yeung.

Please have in mind - discogenic low back pain caused by annular tears, in other words caused by chemical irritation of sinu-vertebral nerve is HARDEST thing to solve when it considers spine.

Let me know how more we can help. I can connect you with some surgeons in your area, just bive me your country.[/QUOTE]


I guess this is how you reply- My pain is constant, It is never ending, burning. The discogram did not produce pain that did not exist, it produced it at a higher extent and showed annular tears with no disc protrusion (small possible bulge). I am not excited to receive an invasive surgery that causes scar tissue and can result in the same 40% success rate. Again, I am not having radiating pain, just on the right side from an SI issue, not on the left side where it burns and causes constant/relentless pain. I am a physical therapist and have seen so many surgical back cases that have caused worse pain and there is no going back after fusion. @ least w/ the IDET if it doesn't work, then you can have another procedure done.
thank you, I appreciate your help. I live in the US and will be moving to eugene, Oregon

Have you had an IDET? How did the PLDD fair for you? are you completely pain free and recovered? inquiring minds want to know fast :)
