Chiropractors/sequestrated disc fragment
iam 36 years old. My problem was
Sacralization of l5,gd1 retrolisthesis l4 over L5,diffused disc bulge with posterocentral extrusion and inferior migration at L4-5 compressing cauda equina nerve roots and causing secondary lumbar canal stenosis. I had a hydrolesis surgery on 30th march, but after 2 weeks got infected and my CRP went upto 98.however, it was controlled but i never got rid of pain.After 3 months again MRI was done which says:
Difuse disc bulge at L5-S1 with broadbased posterocentral protusion causing mild thecal sac indentation with B/l neural foramina compromise with heterogeneous altered signal lesion in Anterior epidural location in left paracentral location abutting left S1 nerve root? Sequestrated disc fragment ??Inflammatory /Granulation tissue.
How much my surgery went successful? How to get rid of pain and this problem . please advice.
I am sorry that you are having such difficulty with your lower back. Based on what you wrote, I really do not have any good news for you. With a sequestered fragment, pain can be severe. The only option you have with this condition is another surgical consultation and most likely surgery. Sequestered fragments can cause severe problems , including neurological damage if not taken care of quickly.
I am sorry for the not so great news, please keep me posted with your outcome. The removal of this fragment should give you significant pain relief.
