Disc Herniation L5-S1
I have been facing radiating leg pain in right leg for past 3 weeks. Medicines helped in 1st week but not working much now. MRI Report says: Grade 1 retrolisthesis of L5 over Sl vertebra. This with right paracentral herniation of L5-S1 iv disc and an adjacent sequestered fragment is causing is compression over emerging nerve roots on right side, indentation over thecal sac and narrowing of the iv foramen on left side. -Posterior bulge of L4-5 iv disc is causing narrowing of the iv foramen, bilaterally. On consultation with Orthopedic surgeon Dr S N Yadav in Ranchi Jharkhand, he suggested Discectomy. Similar suggestion was made by a Neurosurgeon Dr Sai Sudarshan, Pulse Hospital, Ranchi, Jharkhand as well. Attaching MRI scan. Kindly suggest whether to go ahead with surgery or refer to bigger hospitals like CMC Vellore?
