I did all the consertative care I could and had to cave and get the MRI and was sent to the neuro spinal specialist. I had hernaitaed the same disc 10 years ago and done fine after a disckectomy and hten my husband stopped breathing on the couch I had to move him to do CPR and have done teh same injury. The surgoen both opinions ortho and neuro have suggested a spinal fusion. I tried injections and had a really bad reaction and ended up with a spinal headche that has reoccured even after a blood patch. I go in tuesday for myleogram as they think I have a dura tear and want to locate it prior to surgery as well as be absolutely 100% sure the disc is all that is wrong. Of course I am scared as I know this could cause more of a headache then I already have but understand the neccesity.
