Disc buldges and forminal neural stenosis????

Postby nature » Tue Feb 02, 2010 3:04 pm

Hey Guys,

Thought i would try to get some opinions while I am waiting to hear back from the neurosurgeon on Tara's latest MRI. She is scheduled for decompression in two weeks and got a lumbar MRI last week since the NS wanted to make sure he knew everything before going in. So it showed 3 disc buldges and bilateral forminal neural stenosis at L3-4, L5-6 and then L7 and S1. (I think this is right, I dont have the report in front of me.) I got the report from her PCP and havent heard from NS on it yet since he was out all last week. Just wondering if anyone else has this and what does it mean as far as surgery? Will the decompression fix this problem also or are we looking at additional surgery here? I am just impatient and hate waiting to hear from these doctors.
