Do they feel that they understand the pain generators?

What is the surgcial plan and what is the basis for the plan? What are they trying to accomplish?

What levels are to be included in the discogram? If the pain was always from another disc, and they can identify it with confidence, then they resolve issues at that level; then doing another level and leaving the prodics alone makes perfect sense.
