Dr. Zachary Levine answered:

Conjoined l5/s1 nerve root on rt side after spinal fusion.scarring in the spinal canal at L4-5 especially on the rt side intervertebral foramen ?

Conjoined nerve root

Scars
A conjoined nerve root is a congenital condition. It cannot be acquired from surgery. It does make surgery more difficult and the patient may be more prone to radiculopathy or nerve root problems. The larger nerve root sleeve that contains to spinal nerve roots is more easily injured.

Dr. Brian Nichol answered:

Difference between l5/s1 rhitozomy and nerve block?

Length of relief

Head-brain
Nerve blocks use local anesthetic to "numb" the nerve so it does not transmit pain messages to the brain. Rhizotomy uses heat (or cold or a chemical) to inactivate the nerve. Blocks last hours, rhizotomy lasts months.

Dr. Chris Faubel answered:

Large disk bulge with impingement of left l5 ans s1 root nerve. Will I still be able to work?

Depends

Nerve
A large disc means nothing if it's not causing debilitating pain or severe muscle weakness. Epidural steroid injections can help if the pain is shooting down the leg to the foot and sometimes even if it's just causing low back pain. Sometimes the disc herniations are a red herring and the problem is really the lumbar facet joints. Get a good eval from a PM&R Spine specialist.

Dr. John H. Shim answered:

I had a bone spur removed from my L5/S1 due to nerve compression. How likely are they to grow back?

Somewhat likely.

Bones
By bone spur, I assume you are referring to osteophytes caused by arthritis to the facet joints of the back. Facet degeneration is a continous process, and over time, will cause increasing bone spurs. Most of the time, we can accommodate these bone spurs, without surgery. In some instances, the bone spurs will cause enough nerve compression, causing severe pain, weakness and numbness.

Can a herniated L5/S1 disc cause pudendal nerve entrapment resulting in impotence but no other pain/symptoms associated with PNE?

No

I have never seen the presentation that you described. I would recommend a Urology consultation and a endocrine work-up.

I have MS and spinal stenosis. EMG shows L5-L4-S1 compression of nerve root. Orthopaedic surgeon won't do the surgery without neurologist ok.?

Cautious

Multiple_sclerosis
I would guess the surgeon is being cautious to make sure that the neurologist agrees that surgery will help the problem. Stenosis of the spinal canal is different than neuroforaminal stenosis. EMG is usually normal in canal stenosis and is sometimes helpful in neuroforaminal stenosis. Just because you have something wrong on EMG and MRI doesn't mean surgery is the answer. Ask twice, cut once.
