My X-Ray showed (in addition to mild scoliosis) only mild facet degenerative at L5/S1. My MRI only showed a mild bulge at L4/L5 and mild facet hypertrophy at L5/S1 (It also said Disc desiccation noted at L4/L5 -- still not quite sure what that means).
Anyway, I was thinking of getting a second MRI just to make absolutely sure of this whole "mild" thing.
Has anyone gotten a 2nd opinion MRI or XRay? And has anyone ever come back with a different diagnosis than the first set?
If you were going to get a 2nd of something -- would you do XRay or MRI? I am thinking MRI.
