Ok, since I've had some bladder trouble the Dr ordered another MRI. After reading the report I have questions about a couple of things.
1. Please note that there is a fairly prominent reactive endplate and vertebra body edema involving the inferior half of the L4 and superior half of the L5 vertebral bodies. There are also enhancements of these areas of vertebra body edema following contrast administration perhaps related to reactive osteitis.
2. Certainly a superimposed infectious process is not excluded although there is no obvious paravertebral abscess or defined bone destruction identified.
So, does anyone have any idea about what these might mean?
ALIF April 2011 but it turns out I broke before it barely fused.
