L6 S1 10mm slip in association with pars defect

Started by 102048851298707... on 08/10/2015 5:52pm


I'm hoping someone here can explain how I suddenly have a L6. On 2/5/2015 I had a PLIF S/P on L5 S1. So far my T12 L1 changed to a slight instability post op xray on 6/2 with flexion-extension maneuver. My MRI noted that I had a shallow shortly mated central disc extrusions/Hermiston and effacement of the thecal sac...I'm aiming this means the same thing. I was told it wasn't a concern when I went 8/3. I went on 8/3 for just regular standing Xray. My results state that I have eleven rib sets and a 10mm anterior slip of L6 on S1. I have a lot of other disc issues but this is new to me. My MRI and Previous xrays didn't show this. I am in a lot of pain...been back to working, as a plumber for three months . I'm starting to lose hope that I will ever get better. I am seeing a physiologist tomorrow at four. To consult about trigger point shots. I have more information if needed.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Superiorly migrated central disc....assuming it's the same info that was on xray. Can't seem to find how to edit my thread.


I received the trigger point injections a little over a month ago. The first three days were tough but then I felt like I could have a life again. Now I'm back in pain and scheduled to get the shots again on the 27th. Which can't come soon enough!!! My main question is...is it possible to have a L5S1 and a L6S1? Any help or thoughts greatly appreciated. Thank you.
