Is it possible for spinal stenosis, facet arthopathy, spondylosis, or any of those things to go away if they are seen on MRI? My first mri from a yr ago says I have those things yet my second mri only a few weeks ago doesn't say anything about that. I am curious as to whether it is why the test is ordered as to what the report says. Since the reason that mri was ordered was to rule out the presence of my original herniation as a reason for my symptoms so that my doctor could either schedule my surgery or not! So I am just wondering if they dont include those things on the report if the doc doesnt specifically ask to report them or if those things indeed get better on their own.
Anyone else know anything about this?
Any info is appreciated,
