My last spinal MRIs were taken back in Mar '07. For several reasons it seemed time to have new MRIs - (1) to see the current condition of my spine, (2) conern IF a disc is totally gone that perhaps natural fusion may be starting, and (3) my potential spinal surgeon No. 9 wants me to have new MRIs.
I saw my PCP doc this afternoon. He agreed the above reasons were valid, and without any hesitation wrote a prescription for new MRIs. Went to the MRI office and sheduled the MRIs for this coming Wednesday.
A bit of concern how things will be, but better to know now rather than too late in my opinion.
Just thought I'd share.
