I've just had my MRI results can anyone explain further please? I've had severe right leg sciatic pain that's had me on morphine, tramadol, naproxen and amytriptaline also TENS for the last 16 weeks. The pain is now decreasing but I only just got my scan last week. The results said disc bulge at L5/S1 with no evidence of spinal canal stenosis or the cal sac compression. The disc extends into the right L5/S1 exit foraman and this in combination with osteophyte results in narrowing of the foraman and flattening of the right L5 exiting nerve root. The left L5/S1 exit foraman is capacious.
No other significant findings?
Any help would be good thanks http://www.spine-health.com/forum/announcements/spine-health-announcements/mri-reports-why-we-cant-advise
