MRI for nerve pain: L4 and L5

Posted by @user_chf56161a, Dec 24, 2018

My fusion and titanium L-4 was done Nov 14, I’ve had nerve pain in my left hip, thigh, shin and foot since. Pain Dr ordered an mri. The results weren’t good. It said there’s a suspicious pin and L-4 is slipping back on L-5. I’m so sad, but can’t live with nerve pain. I see my surgeon on Jan 9th. Have any of you had this?

Thank you.😕

Sorry to hear you are still in pain. I had a similar surgery 20 years ago. Fortunately, it solved my problem. I also had titanium put in my back. Good luck

That’s what I had L-4 is titanium. I don’t know what things went wrong. I’ll be back at Mayo in January hopefully they’ll fix it or say the mri I had dont here is wrong.

I had that problem where the l4 l5 was rubbing on a nerve. Had stem cells injected and in 4 weeks i was good. Do my stretching every day and have had no pain. The stem cells were my stem cells. Be careful who you deal with as their are a lot of bad clinics out there.

@win sturgeon That is great I have same problem but so far Dr,s just fluffed me off glad you found relieve Did you have the burning pain inflammation in thighs before the stem cells?

No, just the burn in the back. I was going to a center who treated me with steroids but relief ended up being shorter and shorter. Tried the stem cells after 2 friends had the same problem and had surgery which failed them. Took 4 weeks of walking, sitting, some gardening. Basically i gave up riding my bike and mowing the lawn for that time.

I saw my surgeon at Mayo, my new disk has slipped a little and one of the pins moved. He decided to let me go home and call in 2 weeks since I’m improving and can walk, squat, real good. If it heals like that and I’m still better then no surgery if it gets worse another big surgery.
