Discogram showed Level 4 Annular tears - 3 disc fusion :-(
So I've just returned from my appt. with the Neurosurgeon. I have Level 5 annular tears in L3, 4 and 5. He said 3 disc fusion is the surgery option.
Asked him about any other options and he talked about Autologous Disc Stem Cell transplant. It's not covered by insurance, but we are not counting it out. He is going to get more info, see if Level 5 (4) tears would be candidates and then we'll discuss.
Anyone have 3 disc lumbar fusion to share info?
Anyone have Autologous Disc Stem Cell transplant?
