Yes it's all about me as usual! Mr. Self Centered got his results faxed over to his office by sweet talking the nice young gal behing the desk at the MRI place yesterday while waiting to go in. It's nice to be nice to people even if you don't have underlying intentions! Here it is in a nutshell because ny neck is in agony from that contraption they had me in. My meds do nothing and I'm sitting her w/ my tens turned up tp 100!!!
Herniated disks w/ spondylitic changes, C5/6 & C6/7 w/ spinal stenosis, cord encroachment and Foraminal narrowing. Bulging Disks w/ spondylitic changes, C2/3, C3/4 & C4/5 with spinal stenosis.
Lower Lumbar Spondylosis, Herniated disk w/ spondylitic changes, L3/4 with spinal stenosis and foraminal encroachment. Bulging disk w/ annular tear, L4/5, w/ S. Stenosis and F. Encroachment. Bulging disc, L5/S1. and I don't like the sound of this> 3.3 CM Aneurysmal Diattion of Distal Abdominal Aorta.
In the descriptions there was a lot more stuff like Dehydration of disks, hypeertropic changes of facet joints, anterior & posterior verebral spurring,encroachment on the anterior subarachnoid space & left side neuroforamen and there is a 19mm Tarlov cyst seen at S3.
I'm just too beat to write the whole thing the way they listed it. Any coments? Is it bad, not so bad? I'll have to find my last MRI results but I don't remember a cyst or that arota thing. I looked it up and it said it cold be bad if it gets bigger and or breaked, I could bleed into my body cavity. I'm going to ask my Good Doc about it. Thanks for looking and please, any coments or suggestions are welcome!
