mri results

Started by Robins on 02/24/2013 8:10pm

I would really appreciate any help or advice concerning my mri report.

There is no substantial disc or facet abnormality at c2-c3 and c3-c4.

c4-c5 shows normal disc height with mild right paracentral and lateral disc bulging. There is no facet arthropathy, canal stenosis or foraminal stenosis.

c5-c6 shows mild disc space narrowing with mild diffuse disc osteophyte complex formation although no facet arthopathy, canal stenosis or foraminal stenosis.

c6-c7 shows normal disc height with large right lateral disc herniation measuring 10mm craniocaudal, 12mm transverse and 8mm anterior-posterior. There is moderate compression of the right anterolateral cord. No facet arthopathy or foraminal stenosis is shown.

Symptoms began 3 months ago, given little explanation but told to schedule surgery consult with ortho surgeon. I'm trying to educate myself before the appointment and would be grateful for any help.
