Followed up with my surgeon after he read the above results. He basically said there was nothing on the MRI that would be related to an ache or radiculopathy in the low back down to the lower part of my right leg. He said this MRI was probably my best ever. I agree it does sound pretty good. So now I don’t know what to do/think. He said to make an appointment so he could see me in person to help further diagnose.
Could anything obscured by the cage / hardware be causing this?
Otherwise, I guess I have to chalk it up to an irritated and angry nerve unrelated to herniation or compression?
