Well, I had my MRI today...that tech really bruised my arm putting in the contrast dye... So, I get the disc to look at on my computer but I only have images...no results.  So, I look at the pics and I'm not really sure what I see.  It looks like a big old mess to me. 
It looks like some of the discs are ruptured.  And I even see some damage up in the cervical spine...That's great!!!
I guess I'll have to wait until I see the Dr. in 2 weeks...Until then I'll just have to wonder... smhair

We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...

I mentioned on a thread somewhere that it takes a few days to get the report on the disk. After all, the radiologist has to look at the films, then dictate the report, and then it has to be typed. Usually for me that takes a couple of days.

My advice would be to remember that radiologists like other specialists have a lot of education in order to read films, and MRI's are another ball game altogether. So I think you could drive yourself bonkers if you try to interpret it!
