I have been to see a Neuro surgeon today as despite months/years of physio, SI joint injections and epidural by pain team, and of course pain dullers I am really struggling day to day with my lumbar spine. I have had my MRI in March and I was told I have 2 bulging discs so was expecting either to be told nothing to be done or discectomy. But he showed me my MR images and I have a totally worn out disc which has resulted in inflammation in the vertebrae above and below . He has discussed either a spinal fusion or a disc replacement. As I wasn`t expecting that, I am now doing my research before going back to see him for more xrays, and if I decide I want surgery, a discogram.
So I was wondering if anyone has any experience or knowledge of either procedure?
