I had another MRI done and this is the conclusion:There is interval development of metallic susceptibility artifact from posterior decompression and rod and screw fixation from L3-4 through L4-5. Degenerative end plate changes are present throughout the thoracolumbar spine, most advanced at L3-4 where there has been near complete obliteration of the disc. There are scattered spurs and schmorl's nodes. There is bilateral facet arthropathy at L2-3, L3-4. There is mild scar formation at L4-5. there is vacuum disc phenomenon present at L5-S1 and a disc bulge asymmetric to the right with bilateral advanced facet osteoarthropathy.
I have only talked to my family doctor about the results because I am really trying to avoid going back to my neuro. My family doctor says he doesn't know that much about it but doesn't understand why I am having the pain I am having. I seem to be in pain 24/7. It is painful to sit, painful to stand, painful to lay down and it is getting to the point that it seems I am losing the use of my legs, like they don't want to work, so as you can see, I am running out of options. :''( LOL I can't take much for pain. I take Ultram because I can't take anything with codeine because it makes me so sick. The ultram doesn't seem to help much at all but I don't know what else to do?
