Here are my results, please if anyone could help me understand this?


Spinal canal narrowing is suggested at the C6-C7, and C7-T1 levels. There are multilevel

ventral osteophytes present throughout the thoracic spine, with vertebral body hemangiomas at T7, and T11. There is mild spinal canal narrowing at

T2-T3 related to bony ventral ridging. Mild spinal canal narrowing is also present at T10-T11 related to disc bulging and a possible shallow

right central disc herniation. There is mild spinal canal narrowing at T11-T12. No significant foraminal narrowing throughout the thoracic spine.


The thoracic spinal cord has normal signal. On imaging of the lumbar spine, there are vertebral body hemangiomas at L1, and L3. Additional smaller

vertebral body hemangiomas are also present within the remainder of the lumbar spine. There are large ventral osteophytes at L1-L2, L2-L3, and

L3-L4, and mild to moderate ventral osteophytes in remaining portions of the lumbar spine. At L1-L2, there is disc bulging and facet

degenerative change. There is mild spinal canal narrowing. No foraminal narrowing. At L2-L3, there is facet degenerative change and disc

bulging. There is no significant spinal canal narrowing. No foraminal narrowing. At L3-L4, there is moderate facet degenerative change and

disc bulging. There is mild to moderate spinal canal narrowing. There is moderate narrowing of the left neural foramen. At L4-L5, there is

severe bilateral facet degenerative change and disc bulging, with moderate spinal canal narrowing. No foraminal narrowing. At L5-S1, there is
bilateral facet degenerative change. There is a shallow central disc herniation. There is moderate spinal canal narrowing. There is moderate to

severe narrowing of the right neural foramen, and mild narrowing of the left neural foramen. A report was given to the emergency department at 4:10

p.m. IMPRESSION: 1. Multilevel spondylosis throughout the thoracic and lumbar spine. 2. Moderate spinal canal narrowing at L4-L5, and

L5-S1. Multilevel spinal canal narrowing is also present within the thoracic spine, as above. 3. Shallow central disc herniation at L5-S1.

Possible shallow right central disc herniation at T10-T11. 4. Moderate to severe narrowing of the right neural foramen at L5-S1, and moderate

narrowing of left neural foramen at L3-L4. 5. The cervical spine is incompletely evaluated on this exam. Spinal canal narrowing is suggested at C5-

C6, and C6-

C7.


If anyone could help me, I'm getting weaker in the legs, I'm now using a walker, the doctors act as if I can walk fine and suggested a "follow up" by a "back doctor" but things seem to be getting worse, I can't even go up and down the stairs of my house to go and see another doctor, I feel like I'm slowly becoming a para, please help! Thank you!
