I have a conclusion from MRI scan that I don't understand are you able to explain to me. I was referred for a MRI by a Chiropracter the MRI I paid privately to do because the pain was getting so bad and anti inflammatory & pain killers were not really helping me cope.
It concludes there are degenerative changes seen throughout the lumber spine the most significant level is L4/5 with significant canal stenosis and tethering of the cauda equina.
It also suggests I get a Neurosurgical opinion. I have an appointment at hospital ( NHS ) in 4 weeks but am trying to understand it now. Can you explain in simple terms as I don't really know if this is serious or not ?
