Hi both. Thankyou so much for your advice. It's much appreciated.
Hi there. Would suggest that you rely on the MRI reports and consult a pain physician for an epidural injection of steroids as advised by the neurosurgeon. Real time fluoroscopy will reconfirm your lesion or back pathology. The further course of management can be decided thereafter. Let your neurosurgeon examine you with your MRI scan report for best assurance. Take care.
have you googled the results from your mri yet? that can be a big help in finding a path to search next. one thing about the injections is when done under the flouroscope they are taking real time xrays and can see amazing things that weren't caught before...in mine they found a birth defect in my low back....what are some of the wordings from your scan??? you can private message me if you want
No they haven't mentioned anything about this joint. At the moment I'm concerned about the conflicting statements the report from my MRI scan and the surgeons views. I don't k ow which opinion I should be relying on. Can any make any suggestions?
I too suffer from low back right buttock pain...have them check out your sacroiliac joint.....and the nerve blocks can be great. Don't give up on your job yet!
