I am posting the results below and can you tell me what you think? ************** There are 3 MRI's below, the 2 lumbar ones are combined in one report of the Lumbar. Lumbar......

... Hi. I was wondering if someone can explain what my results mean in normal terms. I strained my neck about a year ago and went through a month of PT and got better. But I work alone at night in x-ray and hurt it again last month moving a patient who was fighting me moving him. I tried to deal with it but broke down and went to company health. I am 34 and supposed to leave for... (1 replies)
... I had an mri done on my neck in search of possible ms lesions, what they found is a bulging disc in C5-6 and a herniation in C6-7. Talking to my neurologist he said probably didn't need to do anything about it at this time. Does this sound right? (0 replies)

... Here is what the MRI report says There are no relevant examinations for comparison. The patient is status post cervical fusion at C4-C5 and C5-C6.. There is a susceptibility artifact from the metallic fusion. At C3-C4 there is however a central disc herniation with ventral impression on the cervical cord. There are no significant cervical cord signal abnormalities in... (10 replies)
... Thanks Ruffdogster, I appreciate the info. Yes I am having problems with neck pain and tingling & numbness. Just like before the 1st surgery in 2011. That is one of the reasons for recent MRI's I had. To find out what's going on in my neck. I am worried I'll need another surgery and it upsets me too because the Dr I went to was a Ortho & he said to do all 4 levels. The Dr... (10 replies)
... Means you now have a bulging disc and bone spurs around the bones supporting said disc, below your fusion. Annular means circular, osteophyte means Bone spurs. They say you can suffer future herniation's above or below a prior ACDF. I am about to have a second ACDF surgery c5-6 c6-7 due to a prior ACDF of c3-4 c4-5 causing the below disc which was bulging is now herniated... (10 replies)
... My first fusion was 2 1/2 yrs. ago, at that time I had a herniation at c6-7 which was not something the Doctor felt was an immediate threat, the c3-4.c4-5 were the threat as they were flattening my spinal cord so these levels were the priority and I did not have any neck pain, arm problem at that time. He did the 2 level fusion on these first. About 2 1/2 months ago I... (6 replies)
... I agree with you that it's not wise at all to take that chance. I guess I have been trying to block that out of my mind since I am doing so well. My reservations for not having surgery are also out of fear of having a worse outcome or opting for a disc replacement instead, although I can't find a doctor where I live right now who does them. They do disc replacements in... (6 replies)
... fusion done because of disc herniation into the canal flattening the spinal cord in two places. Once the disc material spills out into the canal, I doubt it is going to go away. ... (6 replies)

... Hi. I have been through PT, chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy, and three Epidural Steroid Injections (in L5S1 only). I've been focussed on L5-S1 with neuro because that's the major pain generator right now. They are talking PLIF. Sent MRI report to Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for a second opinion and I see them Thursday. They are concerned with the... (2 replies)

... Hi All, My story: ACDF C5-6 in 2007. ACDF C6-7 in 2011. I've been having excruciating pain for about a week when I put my shampoo on my head (no joke). I decided to call my neurosurgeon and he ordered an MRI and x-ray. I don't have the report but I came home and looked at the images on CD. It looks like a huge herniation and spinal cord compression at C4-5. I... (1 replies)

... I'm 25 y/o and have been told in the past that I have scoliosis...(this was just by an ortho looking at my shoulders; it was actually an appt for my son & he pointed this out just by looking at me) Anyway...no tests/xrays/nothing...I just kinda forgot about it... and now (5 years later) due to both of my hands going numb, (and I was diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel)...

... I found a site on line that listed a million questions to ask your surgeon prior to surgery. I was at a lose of specific questions to ask. I am not sure but they were general for any .surgery and then some specific for the type of surgery. How long have you been completing this particular surgery? How many have you done? What approach will you use? How long of a surgery?... (25 replies)
... Jas... I am sure it has not escaped you that the MRI report stresses right-side problems, but your symptoms seem to be predominantly left-side. Also, your list of symptoms may have several cervical nerves participating, but those symptoms would stem, I believe, more from the C5 and C6 nerves, which come from the C4-5 and C5-6 levels. So, if I only knew your symptoms, and then... (25 replies)
