I did the big no-no :$ L) and got a copy of the finding on my ct-myelo that I don't see the ns about til next Wed. I understand pretty much everything on it, except this:

"resorptive and sclerotic reative changes..." blah blah (talking about the site of my fusion), does that mean I'm fusing? :? :SS

I know you can't answer for sure, but maybe someone else had a ct or mri worded similarly? Looking at the words alone looks bad, but I think it sounds like a fusion starting to me when they are put in context together... anyone know?


  • it doesn't sound bad at all. Definitely ask you doc though. I assume you are fused?- "resorptive" means whatever foreign stuff (BMP, auto- or allo- bone has been incorporated into your own fusion, and sclerotic means "firm, scarlike".
