What does " marked compresssion.of central and left thecal sac" indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
I am.concerned.it.says.marked compression of thecal sac.i am hoping an elidural.a.d a facet injection.will do.
I can understand your pain and suffering
Marked compression means it is quite severe
Bowels bladder ok
Id like.them to.stay.that way,lol
I can understand
Says.marked.compression central and.left.side thecal.sac left nerve.route.
I mean steroid injections
Got.through course of steroids.seeing anesthesua tomorrow.
That means it is severe enough to cause major symptoms
that is good idea
My hope injections.will fix it
Age, and our straight backs make things worse
Awesome, i hope it works.there is a little.osteolhyte onl 4.5 indenting.thecal.sac but i.think.that one.has.been.there
Ultimately, surgery may be required if you want to preserve the bowel and bladder function
So far.bowel.bladder r fine
But now m a bit worried one bad move and....
That is very good
I wanted to.go.back.to.work.next week but i.think injections.first.could i harm it worse?
You can wait for a few more weeks or months
Injections wouldn't make it worse
actually injections are only a symptomatic relief
they will not alter the disease at all
No,injections will help.i m wondering if one.bad move and i push that sac more
wait for going for surgery
See.i was hoping.to.go.for injections,manage it.that way
Injections will help reduce the symptoms only my dear
I do know thecal.sac involvement isnt good but maybe.injections.will shrink.it up.it is already dehydrated
they will in no way make the sac smaller
Injections will never shrink it
They will stop pain so if i have no.bladder bowel then leave it.that word marked
At one point you will need surgery
As long as you don't have bladder involvement, you can manage with injections
Sh*******i.wanted.to go back to icu after injections.m.tough.my back in Other spots is.shakey.
but once you develop bowel and bladder symptoms, the only choice would be to go for the surgery
I am sorry my dear
Dont have them.but the word marked.
Will injections decompress?
being in healthcare field, you should know how important it is to keep yourself healthy first
No, the injections will not decompress
being in the healthcare field you know we are the worst
the injections will not reverse the disease process
nor will they slow down the progression
Yes, I have to agree on that with you
we are the worst patients
So in.reality.the injections will belp but in your thoughts i will.need surgery in months.yes we r the worst patients:)
Do u think if i can hack the pain.after torinjection do you think I will be able to work before the surgery? something before surgery
in due course of time in my opinion, you will need surgery
you should be able to work after the injections
Ok.so bandaide with the injections and can wait.few for surgery.does peeing often count?
I am bummed
Not really if it is winter
But im thinking if i know i need surgery,just get abguy and do it may
It is your call
Well may as well habe them deal with osesteophyte.
So peeing often is not a symptom
But u r saying within.the year.
I dont like this.
I am sorry my dear
I have to be honest with you
that is my opinion
But it n a differnt spot,maybe leave ot alone
but it is in a different spot maybe I should leave it alone
European is what I'm telling is yes you need surgery within the next few months
if it is not coming in the way of the nerve then there is no point searching for it
doesn't serve any purpose
wow that voice recognition did not work. I said what you are saying is Buttercup suck it up and you will need to do the surgery in a few months or sooner whatever you choose. But about that osteophyte being in a different location a different lamina, maybe I should leave that one alone its only indenting
it does in Penge on the nerve it said
if it is impinging on the nerve then it is best to get it out as well
even if it is in another lamina
well thank you for confirming what I already knew. But I wasn't sure if I was just being you know knowing a little too much, but you made me confirm what I was thinking.
I know that you know
I am doing my part here
Is there anything else I can help you with?
I hope I was able to help put things in perspective
thank you for using the service
Take care, and all the best for everything.
Bye for now
