    Re: Tumor on spinal cord

    was this referred to as an actual 'tumor" or lesion? what did it state word for word in the actual MRI report and was this done using a contrasting agent or not? just exactly what level of the spine is this at, the c spine perhaps or some other level?

    if you have the actual MRI report in your posession, if you could simply type out what was found and placed in that summary at the very end on the very last page? knowing just how this was described by the interpretting radiologist really can make alot of differecne. if you do not yet have a copy of that report, get one either from the ordering doc or the facility that you went to to have the MRI done. you just seriously DO need to start getting your own copies of any and all real testing reports from here on out.

    have they actually done ANY types of follow up testing yet? what did your doc tell you about the finding? was this any level of actual specialist who ordered this or just your primary doc only? in order to best be able to really help you, if you could answer the qestions i asked here it would really help alot. marcia
