I got a CT scan after 5weeks of my scaphoid

I got a CT scan after 5weeks of my scaphoid fracture, what should I expect from this report is my fracture healing or not ?

It read "mild intermittent CT attenuation seen over tubercle of scaphoid; which may be suggestive of a racture with callus formation, A think sclerotic curvilinear line is seen near lunate which maybe suggestive of a previous microfracture" articular surfaces are normal. No soft tissue changes seen.

Is a lumbar hyper-lordosis (79.5 degrees) a contra-indication for a 2 level C5-6, C6-7 ACDF? Not a trick question. It happened to me with disastrous consequences. I got 12mm of bone at C5-6 and 10mm of bone at C6-7. Only exercise removed the LHL symptoms. After 7 years both C4-5 and C7T1 herniated and badly bulged C3-4. Herniations replaced with Synthes ProDisc C. So I have a locked in LHL and cannot exercise. Only solution I can see is remove the ADRs and allow for osseous fusion at C4-5 and C7T1. Thoughts?

My aunt had a ct scan on her abdominal area a week ago. The doctor has asked her not to eat anything six hours before it but she forgot to follow this order and she had her normal breakfast before she went to scan. Her ct scan results show a mass in the bowel. Does she need to have a new ct scan on an empty stomach
