Hey everyone, I'm adding to my other post. I had a 2nd mri and x-rays on the 25th march,Neurosurgeon said he I should be back at work, I told him I wasn't able to return to my job. I had a discogram w/ contrast on april 4th. I went to see Pain managment on April 6th and the results were L3-4 has a mild deformity,L4-5 full thickness annular tear postlaterally on the left with contrast extending along the left disc , is a level 4 tear. L5-s1 a large full thickness annular tear in the midline w/contrast extending outside the level of the disc, is a level 5 tear. No wonder why I have a burning sensation in my back. My Orthopedic said he was going to do a Discogram in May 09, but changed his mind and then released me to the pain clinic. I return to my Neurosurgeon on the 29th April. I will keep yall updated. Thanks Sootman
