They are going to clean up one disc and fuse another with instumentation. But that is pending the out come of the discogram.

Mind you, I am not in the medical field. I do reconise some of the wording because it is listed in my on medical records.
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.
