Ive posted 1 new thread on here last week( the guy from england) but need to ask,Can nerve damage really be seen every time on a MRI scan??
Reason i ask is ive had 2 operations in the last 4 years to trimm L5/S1 same area and still 6 months from last op i have weakness in my left foot,ie weak pulling back or pushing forward,and walk about with aid of a walking stick.
But my consultant says a bit puzzled as nothing showing on MRI scan!!
Is there no 100% definate way of finding out if there is definately nerve damage??

NO... MRI"s do not show nerve damage... You can get a EMG like Jessie1 said... this will give them a better idea if the nerve's are functioning properly ... This will definately answer the question if there is nerve damage or not... That is how I found out that I have nerve damage... Best Luck to you.
