MY MRI REPORT SAYS LARGE CENTRAL ZONE DISC EXTRUSION WITH IMPINGMENT UPON THE LEFT S1 NERVE ROOT IN THE LATERAL RECESS THERE IS MODERATE SPINAL CANAL STENOSIS AT THIS LEVEL THE L4-5 POSTERIOR ANNULUS TEAR IS UNCHANGED IN CONFIGURATION
I HAVE ANAPPOINTMENT FOR A EPIDURAL INJECTION WAS WANTING TO KNOW IF THATS GOING TO HELP AND WHAT TYPE OF WORK I CAN DO SINCE I'M A SALES ASSOCIATE AT WALMART AND MY SURGEON SAYS IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN IF I CAN WORK OR NOT, MY JOB INVOLVES IN ALOT OF LIFTING AND BENDING AND WHEN I STAND OR SIT FOR VERY LONG I GO TO HURTING AND MY BACK FEELS LIKE IT IS BRUISED
HE JUST TOLD ME THAT IT WAS SURGICAL BUT WITH ME NOT HAVEING ALOT OF LEG PAIN TO TRY THE EPIDURAL INJECTION AND GO FROM THERE , BUT WHEN I WENT TO HIM THE FIRST TIME HE SAID FOR ME TO WORK REMAINED TO BE SEEN AND THE LAST TIME HE SAID I COULD NOT WORK, DIDN'T INDICATE IF THE EPIDURALS WERE EFFECTIVE OR NOT. THE QUESTION I HAVE ABOUT THE EPIDURALS HOW EFFECTIVE ARE THEY
SO IN OTHER WORDS WITH THE LARGE EXTRUSION THAT I HAVE EVEN WITH THE EPIDURAL INJECTION, I SHOULDN'T DO HEAVY LIFTIING, BENDING, STOOPING? SO WHAT TYPE OF WORK CAN A PERSON DO WITH THESE SYMPTOMS?
IN YOUR OPINION WITH A LARGE EXTRUSION, HOW POSSIABLE IS IT TO EXPLODE? IF I WERE TO DO ANY TYPE OF LIFTING? AND SHOULD I HAVE HAD SURGERY? WOULD IT HELP IT ANY/
HOW MUCH TIME? THIS HAPPENED AUG 31 , 09 AND THE SURGEON WILL NOT LET ME WORK. I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT I CAN AND CANNOT DO, I DONT WANT TO MAKE IT WORSE, MY LEFT HIP REALLY HURTS AT NIGHT WHEN I GO TO TURN OVER IN BED, AND I HAVE MODERATE PAIN IN BOTH HIPS AND LOW BACK AND SOMETIMES IN MY LEGS AND FEET HURT , IF I WALK FOR VERY LONG MY LOW BACK HURTS , IF I SET FOR VERY LONG IT HURTS ,
IF I CAN TOLLERATE MY PAIN WITH ADVIL, IBRPROFIN, SHOULD I STILL GET THE SHOT? I'VE NOTICED THAT MY LEFT HAND IS STARTING TO GET TINGLING IN IT DOES THE EXTRUSION EFFECT THAT TO?
yesterday I walked on the treadmill for 30 min at 1.7 speed but before that my hips were hurting some and after I was done, they hurt more and my thighs hurt some and my feet
Did I do to much , I'm just trying to get myself built up incase the Dr says I can go to work on light duty like zoning, but I don't know if I can do that for very long since I start to hurting about a hour after walking in the store
they say thats the sciatia nerve
NO, THEY JUST ACHE ALOT, MY LEFT HIP HURTS AT NIGHT WHEN I TURN OVER IN THE BED, I'VE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM UNTIL I GOT THE EXTRUSION, I NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS, I STILL DIDN'T GET YOUR OPINION ON GETTING THE SHOT OR NOT IF THE ADVIL WORKS THE I REALLY WOULDN'T BENEFIT FROM THE SHOT RIGHT?
