I know no one here is a doctor, and I see my own doctor soon, but I got the MRI printout today and it says that I have fusiform widening of the spinal cord from C3 - C7. It recommends I have a pre and post gadolinium enahnced MRI to exclude intramedullary pathology.
As some of you know, I am on my second surgery (posterior revision was 7 months ago) and I have been experiencing SEVERE spasms, headaches, and neck swelling. My blood work shows high levels of many things, including Sedimentation rate, so my pain doctor thought my fusion might be infected.
Does anyone have experience with these type of MRI results?? I have been doing research for hours and all I can come up with from searching for fusiform widening of the spinal cord are things about spinal cord abscess and spinal cord tumors.
Thanks for the feedback!
