What does my MRI scan report indicate?
I've just received my MRI scan reports and it says Like below,
L1-2 DISC: No significant abnormality
L2-3 DISC: No significant abnormality
L3-4 DISC: Mild diffuse disc bulge causing effacement of anterior subarachnoid space without significant neuronal compression
L4-5 DISC: Mild diffuse disc bulge causing effacement of anterior subarachnoid space narrowing of bilateral recesses with mild exiting nerve root indentation
L5-S1 DISC: No significant abnormality
My doctor suggest me for surgery. Is there any option to cure my problem without surgery.
Please upload the MRI image/CD.Tell clinical details.
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist,here to answer your query.
I would surely like to answer your query at my best but I need to have some further input for that:
1)Please upload your MRI images here or MRI CD on google drive and share the link here in the follow-up question so that I can view it with my default dicom viewer and have a better impression about the disease.
2)Please tell about your symptoms or complaints?What are the complaints?Since when are you having them?
I shall be looking forward to your follow-up query with the above details.
Thanks for response. Finally, I am suffering pain in all my joints like shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee and heel. I feel more pain in left side of those parts compared to right. I went to consult a doctor and he gave me some tablets for removing gas and pain killer, but it didn't work. Finally He suggested to take MRI scan of spine. He suggested go for operation later on seeing my MRI scan report due to disc bulge. I've uploaded the scan reports and a photo copy of the scan.
Surgery is not indicated.
Thanks for being in follow-up.
I have gone through your MRI.Mild disc bulges with anterior thecal compression and mild foraminal narrowing.
There is absolutely no need for surgery at this stage.No seconds thought on that.
I suggest you to visit a physician and get yourself examined.Medicines and lifestyle changes will suffice.
If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to answer.
Thanks for being in follow-up.
Of course,you can go to gym.But you have to be selective for exercises.You should consult a physiotherapist that what all exercises to be avoided and what to do.Even some of the gym instructors have a fair amount of knowledge regarding this.However,consultation with a physiotherapist is recommended.
Hope that I have answered your query.If you have some further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up else please close the thread,rate it and write a review.
Please get back to me in case you have any query in future.
