I hope this day finds people doing well.
I just had a CT scan done to see if there was fusion at the surgery site.
This is the results:
Pedical screws appear well seated. Bone graft appears generally fragmented at the discs. It also appears fragmented on the right. However there does appear to be solid fusion mass with cortical and medullary continuity on the left.
L3-L4 mild annular buldging and facet arthrosis. mild narrowing of the central canal and lateral recesses.
T12-T1 there is DDD with endplate sclerosis. There is a calcified right disc protrusion. There are aortic atherosclerotic calcifications. There are numerous retroperitoneal phleboliths.
IMPRESSION: Lower lumbar fusion with a solid fusion mass on the left.
Has anyone had a similar report???
To me this means there is fusion on the left but not the right. Also the fragmented part has me a bit concerned.
Will find out more Tuesday the 29th at my appt.
Also had a MRI of my thoracic which are very painful now, but I will post that under thoracic.
Thanks for listening
