My Latest images of my lumbar show no viable disc at L2. The report stated vertebrae L2 and L3 are eroding at their adjacent surfaces. I have images to share, MRI & X-ray from the last few years, showing the degeneration of the disc at L2. Thank goodness the hospital gave me all they had on CD-ROM, including the software to view each series. I’m hoping to gain some info to educate me on my situation, and choices of treatment…and, hopefully, a possible stop to this crippling pain.
Thank you for giving people this forum! And, thank you for sharing your knowledge.
A very degenerative disc at L2-3 could be your pain generator but don’t just assume that this disc is the cause of your pain. The L2-3 disc can cause lower back pain but this level is uncommon to be a pain generator.
Interesting. Maybe the MVA in 2005 that caused a sudden retrolisthesis at L5…and I began wearing a sport back support to “hold things” in place. Which, for a while, as seen on the images I will upload, made discs close by bulge.
When I get my data drive re-installed, I’ll upload as many images as I think will help. More, if requested of course.
And, thank you for such an amazingly quick response!
Looking forward to more info for us to share with others.
