I had a MRI on Wednesday and the results came back, i need some help interperting these and what I should do next (surgery or anything else). The MRI says I have "Schmorl's nodes seen involving the end plates of inferior T5, superior-inferior T6 and inferior T7, T8, T10 and T11 levels as well as superior end plate of T12. Marrow signal demonstrates large amount of residual red marrow seen along the axial skeleton" That was the diagnosis for the Thoracic spine.
The Lumbar spine report says " L4-5 demonstrates mild circumferential disc bulge withouth central canal stenosis or neural foraminal narrowing. Facet joints are normal."
L5-S1 demonstrates mild circumferential disc bulge withouth central canal stenosis or neural foraminal narrowing. Facet joints have mild effusion."
I have an appointment with a Orthopedic surgeon on Monday to see what I should do, and also to manage my pain.
Does anyone here know what I might have to do with the findings of my MRI and what does all that mean? Thank You for your time
