My surgeons PA just called me with my MRI results
I first asked her if my SURGEON had reviewed the resukts and she said NO!
I told her that I want him to review the film and report since he is my SURGEON!!!!
Report said severe DDD
Bulge at L 3-4 ( that was one of my laminectomy sites 17 weeks ago)
And a spinal cyst that has to be aspirated and examined for infection at the L 3-4 site
( the cyst could be the cause if my pain)
At the same time as the needle aspiration of the cyst I will have an ESI ( injection) pain mgmt.
I want to hear what mu surgeon says !!!!!
NYC may have great hospitals and the #1 best orthopedic hospital in the country, but they depend on PA too much
