I have at the L3-L4 a small left foraminal and far lateral disc protrusion/herniation with mild to moderate left foraminal stenosis and at the L4-L5 there is a minor left foraminal disc protrusion/herniation with contact of the exiting left L4 nerve root and finally at the L5-S1 there is a tiny central disc protrusion/herniation withannular tear without significant copressive features. I really don't understand all this other than I have 3 herniated disc and a tear some place and something else to do with a nerve root. And I am screwed up and in pain.
I m seeing a nerosurgeon Thur. After talking to some other that has been operated on and some that know's someone that been operated on and reading some of the posts on here. The don't do it over weighs the do it. Aounds like I will be in just as much pain if not more after the operation. Thats not goos So if I don't have the operation how will that effect my setlement. Will I be less / more or the same? then On top of it the employer is talking about letting me go cause the dont have light duty work.
The labor workforce of tennessee want to be the mediator. Will the have my interest at heart or there's ?
