does or can degenerative disc disease cause holes in the bone? I just need to know.
I would like to know as well. Welcome to the forum, enjoy.
Had PLIF in 2008 and a Laminectomy. One level fusion, L4-L5.
I have no idea but have never heard that it will. Not that it means anything just never heard about it before.
Well if its an end plate fracture, it would be a hole in the bone/vertebrea. Otherwise know as scmoral node and DDD, so I would say yes. My mri showed scmoral nodes and some doctors are calling it DDD and I have several end plate fractures which are holes. Hope this helps.
