I got the results of my T-spine MRI. As I suspected there was othing going on in there other then my scoliosis which is considered mild and the hemangioma that is at T-7.
There were no disc herniations and the marrow was unremarkabel which I think meens that they could not see it...not sure...
The only thing that I wonder about is this...I have ywo hemangioma on my liver and I am supposed to have them CT'd ever couple years to make sure they are ot getting any bigger. So what is to say that the one on my T-spine is not getting any larger and how come they did not give a measurement of the hemangioma on the report?
Some peoples reports have measurments on them and somehow it seems it would be important to know if it is bigger or not...Although I guess since they did compare the old MRI and the New one if it were bigger then I am assuming they would state that inthe report, but id does make me wonder.
So This is where I am at now...
I went to the first Pool PT yesterday. I did not have a huge pain flare this morning like I would after the other type of therapy so this is good news...I think I will be able to continue with the therapy which is something I am really wanting to not have a need medically to gove it up.
I will see the PM on Thursday and hope that he will be able to palpate the area of burning and feel recreate the symptoms of pain and come up with a plan of action to try and treat the pain.
At this time I feel this bad burning pain is what keeps me from getting more active...
I am now a few days past the 4 month mark from my two level ACDF C 4-6. Yes I hae neck pain still, but it is not the same pain it was before the surgery in Sept. Before surgery it was burning numb and tingly arm weakness among some other types of pain...
Now it is more soreness, stiff ness, muscle aches etc.
I feel if I did not have the burning in between the shoulder blades....well a bit lower actually, I could signifigantly reduce the amount of pain meds I take...
Also I am awaiting a call from the Pain Psychologist to get an apppointment...
I know he was on vacation so hopefully he will call soon or I wil have to leave a new message.
Does anyone out there suffer from this???
Did you have an ACDF and have this pain before surgery and still again after your surgery??
What types of things have you tried to deal with this pain?
Did or do you have medical tests that show no disc problems in that throacic spine as I do?
What else might this be? Myofacial pain???
I thought Myofacial pain was more of a surface type pain and this feels somewhat deep in the tissues???
Any suggestions or information is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for reading and supporting me!
