I had surgery in 4/08 - it helped with some of the pain. MRI now shows spinal fluid leak (not confirmed with mylegram/CT). CT shows a tumor at S1 and Bastrop's Disease at L3 and L4. Can anyone help me locate info on that. I go back to the neuro in a couple of days and would like to be able to ask intellegent questions.

Thank you for your help,


  • :) hi! :H i can't help you with your question but i wanted to welcome you to the forum. perhaps someone will come along who can help you. :? i hope you are feeling better soon. good luck! Jenny :)
  • But I assume this is a new finding since surgery?
    It has grown since the operation?

    So I'm thinking...

    Q- implications? Options of treatment? Risks?

    I'll look it up and see what I find. Good luck

  • Thank you for taking the time to welcome me to the forum.

    I had c spine fusion 12 years ago. That was a breeze compared to lumbar fusion. I had 2 blown disks and an unstable fracture. Surgery really wasn't an option. I have a feeling that I will be having additional surgery to remove the tumor.
  • Neither the tumor nor the Bastrop's Disease were mentioned on the MRI's that I had. They were found on a myleogram/CT.
  • That is it. It was mispelled on the report. Thank you so much!!
