Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Hi everyone, this is my first time here and boy was I glad to find it. Had a discogram done and what follows is the findings. I must admit that I am a bit confused as to what it all means and hope that someone can help.
COMPUTED AXIAL TOMOGRAPHY LUMBAR SPINE WITH CONTRAST
There is a central disc protrusion at L4-5. There has been a partial left hemilaminectomy. There is no significant neural frontal narrowing. There is moderate central stenosis.
There is a small central disc protrusion at L5-S1. There is mild central stenosis and left neural foraminal narrowing. There is a unilateral pars defect on the left.
RADIOLOGY DISCOGRAPHY LUMBAR
L4-5 Slight disc space narrowing, minor endplate spurring. Contrast extends from the nuclear region and to a posterior disc herniation, encroaching on the spinal canal.
L5- S1 Moderate disc space narrowing. No contrast was injected. It extends throughout most of the disc space, and appears to extend into disc protrusion or scar tissue.
Any help would be great, does this mean that the partial laminectomy wasn't done correctly or in 7 months have things gotten that bad?
