Reading My CT report ( transverse process)


Hello all , here I am again puzzled about my CT findings again.
I was reading this part and was confused so I looked it up on spinehealth
: The L5 transverse process is sacralized. This is bony protrusions connected to the vetebra ...Hello all that was cut out! Anyway they said this can be relieved most of the time without surgery with injections to sooth /hide the pain. Now I'm wondering if maybe this could be causing the low back pain again ? I'm sure it can..I haven't spoke to my surgeon about my MRI's or CT's yet.. I will ask him about this. Has anyone ever heard of this ?

Thanks for all your replies [/SIZE]

Sacriliazation might be easier to search for. My MRI says attempted sacrilization and one other one said something like it took on one side. From my highly educated understanding this is the bodys attempt at fusion itself. Just kidding about the education thingy.
