Does any one know Lumbar discogram & intradiscal injections of glucosamine and dext
My Pain Management doctor wants me to do these procedures in three months, he thinks I am not a good surgical candidate but still have right leg pain now . I knew discogram but don’t know why need to inject glucosamine and dextrose at same time . My doctor also wants me to do an arterial Doppler of the right lower extremity. I knew this is a test of blood pressure It is usually ordered to see if there is a lack of blood flow through my legs
Now I have two question as following,
1)I knew discogram can diagnose my lumber disc decease, but have injection of glucosamine and dextrose any serious side effect need to be concerned?
2)If I got a positive test result when I done arterial Doppler test, can this result negative the diagnosis which leg pain caused by disc herniation or support this diagnosis?
had herniated disc in L5_s1 five years ago, have
had persistent right leg until now.
Have shoulder pain , probable is SLAP tear or tenosynovitis.
