Help I am 25 years old and this is the results of my MRi
I injured my back 2 and a half years ago, I herniated a disc in my l5 at work and have recieved little to no treament due to the inadequacy of workmens compensation....
These are the findings of my latest MRI after two years....
A small posterior disc herniation directed more to the left is obliterating the anterior epidural fat with mild thecal sac compression. The intervertebral neural foramina are encroached upon bilaterally more on the left side. Ne Central canal stenosis is seen. Bilateral lumbarization of S! is noted. Correlation with plain radiography is recommended.
The doc wants to do a fusion surgery, I dont want that for fear of it being worst. Cant sleep, no peace of mind, and I am in a lot of constant pain. Any reccomendations of what to do and what does this MRI mean?
