I've been reading different forums here trying to take in as much information as possible. I'm hoping to get valuable information from others that has experienced some trying time as me. Here are my MRI findings:
C2-3: Disk bulge extending to the neural foramina bilaterally. Mild uncinate spurring. Mild face degenerative change. No significant canal or neuroforaminal compromise.
C3-4: Intervertebral disk bulge with superimposed left subarticular to foraminal disk protrusion, with minimal indentation of the ventral cord. Mild to Moderate left and Moderate right neuroforaminal narrowing. Effacement of the left subarticuar zone a C3-4, possibly with impingement upon the exiting left C4 nerve root. Mild canal compromise.
C4-5 Intervertebral disk bulge extending to the neural foramina bilaterally. Superimposed right central intervertebral disk protrusion indenting the ventral cord. Mild canal compromise. No significant neurofoaminal stensosis.
C5-6: Intervertebral disk bulge extending to the neural foramina bilaterally. Suerimposed right central intervertebral disk protrusion indenting the right ventral cord. Mild canal compromise. No sighnificant neuroforaminal compromise.
C-6-7: Intervertebral disk bulge extending to the neural foramina bilaterally. Shallow superimposed central disk protrusion. Mild canal compromise. Mild lleft neuroforaminal narrowing. Right greater than left perineural cysts.
C7-T1: Disk bulge extending tot e neural foramina bilaterally. Bilateral facet degenerative change. No significant canal or neuroforaminal compromise. Prominent bilateral perineural cysts.
Then it goes to state "Vessels of the neck demonstrate appropriate flow voids. Scattered multilevel cervical station lymph nodess, noone of which are pathologically enlarged. .Thyroid and airway are obscured by saturation band. Partially empty sella noted."
My impression: within the limitations of motion degradation, evidence for multlevel degenerative sponylotic changes involving the cervical pine, most prominent at the c3-4 and c5-6, with interverebral disk protrusions, mild canal compromise and indentation of the ventral cord, as above. Effacement of the left subarticular aone at c3-4, possibly with impengement upon the exiting left c4 nerve root.
Mild to moderate left and moderate right neural foraminal narrowing at c3-4. Mild left nerual foraminal narrowing a c6-7.
Straightening of the normal cervical lordosis.
with all this being said, what kind of treatment does a person has to encounter. I'm scared, confused, and lost.
Your help and input would be greatly appreciated, as I need to know that I'm not alone .
