Has anyone had this condition before? I am in a lot of pain and won't be seen by a spine specialist until 3 weeks from today.
My results say ..
.there is loss of disc height and disc signal with minimal retrolisthesis. Disc bulge measures up to 3.5mm right posterolaterally. Facet hypertrofy is present with lateral recess stenosis on the right. There is moderate to severe neural foraminal narrowing right greater than left but without significant central spine stenosis.
The L5 vertebral body is cone-shaped. True numbering of the lumbar spine can only be determined through imaging of the entire spine.
Minimal disc bulges are present at these levels without disc herniation, spinal stenosis, or neural forming narrowing.
Conus medullaris terminates at L1
1. Facet hypertrophy and disc bulge with lateral recess stenosis on the right at L5-S1
2. Segmentation anomaly
