... P.S.S. I agree with Maltluver in that you might consider an orthopaedic surgeon. My first two cervical fusions (3)levels were done by a well-known, neurosurgeon highly acclaimed in his field. A lesser known orthopaedic surgeon had to re-do these levels on me and added a fourth level in my neck due to spinal instability. I swear by the orthopaedic surgeon. This one just... (4 replies)
... Hi, I just had my fourth spinal surgery, an open ALIF fusion on L5-S1 so this is all fresh in my mind and my aching butt/back :) Consider asking your doc how he can tell from these tests whether or not there is an annular tear from this disc. Even though your bulging disc might not be pressing directly on nerves, a bulging disc that has a "tear" can actually leak fluid. If... (4 replies)
... Oh my goodness. I can't see any reason he would want to do a fusion based on these findings, but please keep in mind that I'm not a doctor! What are your symptoms and how bad are they? Where is the pain and what kind of pain do you have? I would urge you to take your films to get a second opinion, preferable an Orthopedic Spine Specialist. In general, it has been my... (4 replies)

... then I have been in Pain Management and recently complained of symptoms that reminded me of my initial injury before the surgery. That doc put me in for another MRI and everyone freaked out when they read the dictation. By everyone, I am refering to the doctors at Primary Care and Pain Management. ... (5 replies)

Doctor doubletalk
Mar 29, 2008
... Hey Dated, I'm 39 too with similar issues and share your frustration. I echo what everyone else says about seeing a doc who specializes in the spine. As for arthritis meds, give it a try. I have bone spurs and both facet and SI joint problems and recently started on a patch called Flector, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that I put on my back twice a day....

... ugh...often resulting in leg pain. But when it is mild, it shouldn't be a problem. Most people over about 25 have a little bit of stenosis. Did the same group interpret both MRIs? ... (5 replies)
... Hoppy, I feel your pain! I, too, am always too unsure of myself to ask for better pain relief. Now that I also have severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome going on as well, it makes me less uneasy about asking for better pain medication. I have an appointment with my doctor on the 21st of March for a two month follow-up and am going to talk to her face-to-face about my pain... (13 replies)
... hoppy, thats okay i like i said can totaly understand. I would just ask if they can see your in pain they will give it . Take care, Love, Monkey (13 replies)
... I know, Monkey. Thank you! I wasn't meaning to sound testy.:( The pain does get the better of me sometimes. I hate to even ask for something stronger than Ibuprofen. The problem is: with no diagnosis and the doctor saying all the tests are normal, I am too embarrassed :o(for lack of a better word?) and don't have enough confidence left to ask so I just sit here and am...

... hopalong, try not to get too discouraged here, not many people know what to say to this kind of thing when someone posts as we are not dr.s just supporters! I have similiar issues like you and you just have to keep fighting and get answers. I deal with low back,hip, leg and foot pain and have been told everythings normal persay. It may take several dr.s and several appts. to... (13 replies)
... Wow! No one? That's OK! I get passed from doctor to doctor. They do "a test", say it's normal and say come back if it gets worse! If it wasn't bad, I wouldn't have gone in the first place! Why can't they work together and fit the MANY pieces like a puzzle? (13 replies)

... Hmmmm, according to the research I've done, I don't think it has to be shooting pain to be sciatica. I believe that numbness in the foot and calf pain are considered sciatica. at any rate, I'm just trying to figure out if my sitting pain can be caused by the S1 nerve and I can only find spotty evidence. My doctor doesn't think it is, but said not to rule it out. (4 replies)
