Thanks alot for your comments.. Here is what the MRI states: THORACIC SPINE:
The cord signal and contour are within normal limits. Verebral body height and alignment are preserved. Scattered Schmorisers nodes and hemangiomata. Mild dextrocurvature . Minimal disc degeneration at several levels. No alarming marrow signal features. Multiple perineural root sleeve cysts are present bilaterally at several levels. Bilateral pieural effusions present.
Posterior interbody hardware from L4- through S1 generates susceptibility artifact limiting local detail evaluation. Vertebral body height and alignment are preserved. There is mild disc degeneration at several levels with relative preservation of disc height.
Spondylotic bulging at L3-4 with mild facet hypertrophy resulting in mild to moderate central/lateral stenosis and minimal foraminal narrowing. Sacral Tarlov cyst present at the S2 level, measuring 2CM maximally.
There is no nerve root clumping or compression of the cauda equina.
* They also did an EMG and they said that looked good. I just felt like because I have had problems in the past and have a spinal fusion that no one wants to mess with my fusion. Of course I would have gone back to my original neurosurgeon but unfortunately that cannot happen due to personal problems and a substance abuse problem. It is a very sad situation. It recently has been all over the news here
I am just hoping to get some feedback. I have actually googled the Tarlov cyst and found almost all of my signs and symptoms! I am just so confused as why they couldnt go in and remove this and then fix the bulging discs while they were already in there. I just dont want to lay down and give up, I just didnt realize what a fight I was in for
