to make a long story short.fell down a flight of staires at work back in july of last year.wasn't getting better doing chro.for nine months.chro doc decided i better have a mri.mri showed two bad discs L-4 and L-5.also an hernated disk in C-5 and L-6.after the discograme on the lumbar area showed two pain gentorators on L5 and L6.decided to have idets on L5 and L6.wasn't very comfortable but compared to the discograme was a piece of cake.feeling alot better just five days after the idets.pain meds cut in half and that in it self is great considering i was on oxycontin three times a day.now norco for the pain and elavil just to help me sleep.taking three elive to sleep now only one now after the idet.so far so good.i'm glad i decided to have the idets.but still i'm facing surgery to the cervical area.to bad the idets can't be done to the cervical area disks to small for the idet procedure.will try to keep you posted on my progress.
