Re: Questions about an MRI
I don't know what the hypertrophy is. But I also have L5 S1 disc protrusion. I noticed yours said mild. I have L4-L5, L3-4 protrusions also those two said mild and mine are 8mm. I'm not sure what that has to do with anything. I think it has to do with the narrowing of of the nerve canal. My L5 S1 was deemed moderate being the worst of the three and Is almost totally closed off that canal I think all three are causing problems And I'm seeing a surgeon next week because the pain is so severe. So you might get injections if you haven't already. That helped me for a while. Hope that helps.
