Issue: L4-5: There has been development of a large right paracentral disk extrusion which extends cephalad. The extruded disk measures 11mm in transverse dimension, 7mm in AP dimension and 2.3 cm in cranial caudal dimension. The extruded disk extends along the prosterior aspect of the L4 vertebral body with significant narrowing of the lateral recess. The disk is in closeproximity to and likely contacts the exiting right L4 nerve root as well as the passing right L5 nerve root. No defined foraminal stenosis is identified. There is effacement of the rightward aspect of the thecal sac with moderate canal stenosis (AP diameter 6mm) There is mild narrowing of the leftward aspect of the thecal sac (AP diameter 9.5mm). There is mild degenerative change of the left facet joint.

Had Surgery on 10.15.2013 for a disco of the ruptured area. MY right shin is still numb and im starting to have more and more sciatica down the right leg and some but and low back pain. Is this normal? Could more of the disc fluid ruptured out again? Should I be worried at all.. I do take care of myself as far as not doing things that would cause a re injury to the best of my ability. I am just looking to see if this is normal or should i be asking my doc for a fallow up MRI to ensure nothing else has ruptured>?

Thank you,
