  • Welcome to Spine Health.
    I see that this is your first post.
    Please take the time to explore the links Liz has given you in her post above.
    In the Forum Rules, you will see that no-one is allowed 'to respond to any request for analysis of diagnostic tests' (ie MRI, CTscans, EMG etc)
    Also, members 'agree not to ask for any analysis or interpretation of diagnostic tests'.

    None of us are trained doctors and so are not qualified to do this.
    Have you seen your consultant yet to hear his interpretation of this MRI scan?
    I hope that he will be able to reassure you.

    What we can do is understand your frustration after cervical surgery, to be back in pain again. I hope that you will find that talking to others who understand and are going through similar things themselves is helpful.
    Looking forward to getting to know you better. :-)
