Thank you Dr Corenman for your reply . Unfortunately in the past few weeks my symptoms have deteriorated with a big flare of of lower back back and leg pain about 2 weeks ago. Iv had another mri , with dye injection for contrast , the radiologists finding was of probable rehernaition of the same disc . My surgeon has said he does not necessarily agree with the finding . He says that it’s possible a bleed and not disc is causing the compression and that the next week or two would tell a lot . From your experience is possible that a post sorgical bleed could mimic a reherniated disc on a mri? And if so is it possible that it could clear up ?
I’m not convinced myself , symptoms have currently reverted to persistent leg pain , lower back feels ok .
