My report reads "L4-5 discs with a left lateral high signal intensity annular tear."
Does this mean it is a HIZ? since the word Zone is left out....
I hear HIZ tears are most likely to be Grade 3 or 4 tear. I hope I dont have HIZ. I just assumed that i had HIZ but then again assumtion is the mother of all screw ups. My family doctor does cannot read the detail of MRI, Radiologist who gave me ESI said mine is not very noticiable.
Waiting on the reply from a doctor from Mayo, Rochester so i can get better reading on my MRI.
My family doctor will get me started on new PT training but heard it is more hard core training.
there is always glim of hope in the darkness
