I am new to this board,I have been on the Back and the PM board. I could really use your advice regarding a recent Cervical mri that I had last week.
Apparently the written report was accidently faxed to me along with my Dr.
After reading it I was surprised that no one has called me about the findings.
Perhaps it really isn't that bad but would like ro know if anyone can explain it to me. The repost says:there is obliteration at the C5-6, and there is vertebral canal stenosis and large annualar bulging/herniation at C6-7. I had a cervical fusion at the C4-5 many years ago and I have severe DDD along with RA. I am scheduled for a cervical Epidural tommorow am. I willbring this report along with my films to the hospital so the Anestisiologist can look at it and see what I should do next. Has anyone had this kind of report and is it something that needs surgery for? Thanks so much for your help, I am in so much pain right now and nothing will touch the pain.
