. I feel like the last one picked for a team at a softball game!! I am desperate for someones experienced opinion. If you would take a moment, it would really help me and be appreciated.
I went to the Dr. and got the results. He is talking about surgery, and it freaks me out as I have already had several surgeries on my neck (fusion and plates C-3 thru C-7). I have had injections several times with little results. Anyone who has experience and personal opinion would be appreciated. He also mentioned that at L2-3, the bone on bone is causing them to "Bleed"?? I have never heard of this.
The results are;
L2-3 Loss of disc height and end plate osteophytosis. Hypertrophic changes of the facets. Disc loss height resulting in increased scoliosis. Overall, there is severe spinal stenosis and severe bilateral neural forminal narrowing.
L3-4 2-3 mm disc bulge. Facet hypertrophy. Moderate central spinal canal stenosis and moderate to severe bilateral neural foraminal narrowing.
L4-5 Facet hypertrophy. 3mm disc bulge. Mild central spinal canal stenosis and moderate bilateral neural foraminal narrowing.
L5-S1 Intervertebral disc height loss and facet hypertrophy. Severe bilateral neural foraminal narrowin
Any insight would be appreciated. God Bless you guys!
