I got my new mri report today from new gp-doc and now off to see new serg doc
It dose not say disc herniation o boy but it did say annular tear associated with posterior buckling of the annulus at l5 s1 and mild bulging of the annulus at l4-5 and slight asymmetry in s1 nerve roots and slight neuro foramen compromise on left side at l5 s1
What dose it mean (I did way to much today drove to far sat to long stood up to long ) the mad guy in my back and down my leg into my foot is really pis******** now and I am all most sick trying to figure this report out .3 weeks till serg doc appointment I will be a nut case by then (im all most there now tee hee) looks like to me disc may be leaking on nerves and or slight compression. what do u think I dont like what I have been reading about annular tears


  • Hi and good luck at the doctor today.

    I'm not a doctor so wouldn't really be very good at insight on the MRI but others might give you insight.

    My only observation is that you had a MicroD back in May '09 on L5-S1 so not surprised that the MRI still confirms you had an annular tear and it appears as if it is confirming that you should be having left leg pain.

    I wish you the best. I hope they can treat your pain non-surgically. Post an update after the appt.
  • i have to wait 19 days to see surgeon :W
