Hi everyone, thanks for your precious time and info.
So 9 months ago i fell off an extension ladder(fell with the extension ladder ) 10 feet and that's where my pain journey started. Since i was at work i was covered and been so through workers comp. Which is another type of pain i'm no so fond of < . Any who I've done x-rays, ct scans and finally after 9 months i got an MRI. So ill post a bit of the MRI report;
L4-L5: There is a broad-based 3 mm disc bulge with mild to moderate bilateral facet disease resulting in mild
bilateral neural foramen stenosis without spinal canal stenosis.
L5-S1: There is a 2 mm grade 1 spondylolisthesis of L5 on S1 with bilateral spondylolysis. There is a broadbased
3 mm disc bulge with mild to moderate bilateral facet disease without spinal canal stenosis. There is
moderate bilateral neural foramen stenosis.
There is a T2 hyperintense cystic structure posteriorly within the sacral canal at S1 measuring 4.0 cm
craniocaudad by 2.1 cm AP. This displacing the thecal sac towards the left. This is also impinging on the
traversing right S1 nerve root within the right lateral recess region.
1. Intraspinal cystic structure measuring 4 x 2.1 cm displacing the thecal sac towards the left at the level of L5-
S1 and also compressing on the traversing right S1 nerve root within the right lateral recess region. This may
reflect a large Tarlov cysts or perineural root sleeve cysts.
2. Mild degenerative changes at L4-5 and L5-S1. Moderate bilateral neural foramen stenosis at L5-S1 and mild
bilateral neural foramen stenosis at L4-5.
3. Grade 1 spondylolisthesis of L5 on S1 measuring 2 mm with bilateral spondylolysis.
I'm not asking for medical advice but i hope to be able to find anyone who's been affected by one of these observations and how they managed . Not so i can follow in those steps but simply for educating purposes. I've googled most of these statements and words but i still have an appointment with my main Doctor and till then i will see what he suggest. I know my Dr. will explain all of the above. Also i will be looking into the main site for info on my situation. One last thing before this incident I had never had any previous accidents or been hurt or in pain.I was 27yrs old . Any links where i can look into are welcome. Thanks for reading this.
