Update: Just got off the phone with my doctor's admin. My doc is out of town today and the radiology report is still not available. (They no doubt do that so that patients don’t read the report and misinterpret it before the neuro has a chance to translate it to English, while I’m advanced and can misinterpret the pictures without the report, I say with dry humor.)
My MRI from the 13th of November looks like a hot mess. Unless I am mistaken, and I don't have a radiology report, just pictures, I've got a dural tear at C4-C5 which was not fused at the time of the last surgery. I can't tell whether the disc is the culprit or a screw from the fused disc below it; either way, there is no dura visible at that level (either on the lateral view or the axial view) which leads me to believe I'm in danger of a cord transection, especially if it's a screw that punctured the dura.
Wish me luck and hope I'm wrong!!
