... Most Dr's see spondylosis as dx. frm radiologist. MRI w/ dye hopefully was done. This term is a generic word they read & don't read on. Most Dr's let a nurse ck. reports & they never read. Get all copies uncluding blood/labs etc. for a hm-hlth file. I U R flat on mri so many times impingement is overlooked. I suffered yrs. till I did own research. The 3mm mass is located... (4 replies)
... CLC: It means U may have caught a problem in time, unlike me. Narrowing @ C3-4 happens alot if U read, computer board, crafts or anything that keeps U tilting nose dwn.

... Well, thank you one and all! During a fitful/painful night, I did manage to get a little sleep. My orth feels completely different about chiro's. As a matter of fact, my chiro was in surgery with me during my PLIF and during the IDET.

I must say that I have never felt better than when walking out of his office. However, that feeling lasted no more... (6 replies)
