    Well i saw my surgeon yesterday. His assistant and the surgeon thinks that dull soreness and sharp pain i felt around the incesion area sounds like something that is aggrevated or from the scar tissue. He said give it a couple weeks and see how im doing and wrote a prescription for melixicsn.

    As for as another MRI he went ahead and put in to order one at my request with an xray.

    He also said I should consider PT

    It seems that the discomfort could be from scar at the incision site. Let us know the findings on the new MRI.

    That’s the same thing the doctor assistant said regarding scar tissue. My MRI will be Wednesday of next week and follow up to review MRI with dr on Nov 20.

    I see he ordered a MRI without Contrast.

    Would one with contact by ad been better?
