I had a mri and am going to the 1st surgeon visit tomorrow. I was just wondering how bad you think it is or is not. Conclusion was:
1. old healed 50% compression fracture of T12 with healed posterior cortical retropulsion. The posterior cortex of T12 contacts the spinal cord ventrally but does not compress the cord, due to the large spinal canal dimensions.
2. Internal disc degeneration at T11-12 and T12-Li with dorsal bulging of the T12-L1 disk.
3. Internal disc degeneration L2-3 with annular bulging and moderate central spinal can stenosis, primarily in anteroposterior dimension. There is high suspicion of an underlying annular tear across the full width of the spinal canal.
4. Grade I degenerative spondylolistheses, L3-4 resulting in severe central spinal canal stenosis with compression the the thecal sac and contents.
5. Internal disc derangement L3-4 with circumferential annular bulging and suspected annular disruption. Moderate stenosis of both L3-4 foramina.
6. Posterolateral annular tear and disc herniation, L5-S1 to the left, with mild proximal impinged upon the left S1 nerve root.
