... I started with an L2-L3-L4 fusion & it hasn't stopped. Did the docs explain that area above & below fusion becomes quite vulnerable, i.e. there is increased stress & strain on these areas as the fused area has lost mobility so the adjacent unfused areas try to 'pick up the slack'. There is a good chance that he could develop issues at L3-L4 after fusing L1-L2. Also, use your... (2 replies)

CT Scan Results

... Everything listed in the radiology report indicates some slight degenerative changes in the lower lumbar area. The good news is that the adjective used to describe your issues is "mild," so it is entirely possible that you will see a doctor and he will tell you your MRI "looks fine." Or, he might say "the MRI is typical for someone your age...and everything looks OK." ... (6 replies)
... The term "spondylosis" simply means osteoarthritis. In the spinal canal, the largest diameter is in the lumbar area. A 1 mm bulge is simply that the disc is slightly bulging. 1 mm is tiny, so that is nothing to worry about. Disc desication is a normal "drying' of the discs. This happens to everyone after the age of 21 or so. It occurs because there aren't blood supplies... (1 replies)

... From what I experinced was similar to yours.. My MRI showed DDD at l5-s1 and to confirm that was the disc of the pain source from IDD a discogram was ordered.. I had 3 levels checked at l3-l4, l4-l5 and l5-s1. The 2 disc was a control disc and to confirm the l4-l5 was good enough to hold a fusion at l5-s1 which was confirmed.. The l5-s1 was the only disc that replicated my... (8 replies)

... Hi- I can relate to you. I am 28, and had my first fusion 7 months ago. I had L5-S1 fused, and now I need L4-L5 fused and possibly L3-L4. L3-L4 and L2-L3 are beginning to tear, but only L3-L4 caused pain at my discogram. I have a 2 year old, but I really want to have another baby, and I am also terrified of becoming pregnant. I had a great job, but lost it after being... (5 replies)
... I am a 25 year old female about to graduate college ***REMOVED*** I had a laminectomy at L4-L5 in 2006 and have recently had horribly increased back pain, so my surgeon refered me for an MRI--- Now I can't read the results and he is out of town for a week =\. I feel like my life is slipping away from me (my dreams, my career) because this report LOOKS so bad... I thought I... (2 replies)
... Does this make sense to those who know this stuff? : Last week I had 2 levels of diagnostic medial branch blocks to see where they will do the radio-frequency rhizotomy...ablation. My Dr. was sure my horrible hip pain was from L4-5. He did the L4-5 and my hip still killed me. (and so did my back).Then we went back in and he did L5-S1..BINGO....hip pain and limping gone. The...

... Hello All, I hurt my back in 2002 at work. In 2004 I was in a car accident & it took out my back from L3-4 to L5-S1.

Well I havejust had a new MRI I have found out my L4-5 has totally herniated & on the nerve & L3-4 has a bulge with tear... (8 replies)
... I had the Prodisc Artifical Disc Replacement in 2003, and it was one of the best things I have done for myself. Before I had this procedure I was told by my Ortho that if I were to have a fusion I would be needing further surgery in the future. I had 3 discs that were degenerating, L3-4 L4-5 L5-S1 the ortho felt that replacing L4-5 he may be able to save the other two discs.... (18 replies)
