DDD & DISCOGRAM.. NEED HELP
I had another MRI on 12-6 which was an upright and seen the neurosurgeon the same day.. The MRI showed moderate/severe DDD ant l5-s1.. On my other MRI and with a OrthoSpine doctor it showed the same issues 1.5 yes ago.. The pain is still the same as in the left lower back and left buttocks pain , legs and in foot occasionally.. This neurosurgeon advised he wanted to do a PLIF but befor he wanted a discogram to confirm the pain source.. he only order the l4-l5 and l5-s1 to be tested.. The other doctor done a discogram which they hurt like s***. During that one they did a few different discs and I almost came off the table when he did the l5-s1.. he sent his report over to the doctor and 2 weeks later I seen him and he said the di I almost sh** my pants.. I said how is that possible? He said the doctor doing the discogram said he thought I was malinering.. I said u guys are retarded.. Why in gods name would I lie and know I would possibly be headed to a fusion.. I quit seeing him and went to a pain clinic where in the last 1.5 yrs immideately after to check the discave had 2 sets of ESI and 2 facet joint injections with no help.. They want to keep me coming every 2 months to shove narcotics down my throat.. I would like to know if anyone has had the same pain in a disc they normally do and told the discogram is negative.. Also please tell me how/who would malinger on this test..Its not a WC issue or accident related.. This time a CT will be done to test for tears and other damage.. Am I the only person who has faced this problem?
