MRI results for my 66 years old mother
I am a concern daughter of a 66 years old mother. She suffered an accident at her job in 2007. Since than my mother has not been the same. The MRI results states the following:
1. L4-L5, 1mm bulge. otherwis unremarkable.
2. L5/S1 thre was desiccation. A 3-mm protrusin with annular tear. Latral disc osteophyte comex caused severe right foraminal narrowing compromising the right exiting nerve root. There was moderate narrowing on the left.
One Doctor suggested for posterior lumbar interbody fusion surgery at L5-S1. Other doctors have disagree and stated because of my mothers age she would not benefit for the surgery. I would appreciate any feedback from anyone with similar experiences. I also would appreciate the feed back of specialist in this field of work. Thank you so much.
