i had a MRI done a few months ago and the results state the following, “there is disc desiccation with mild to moderate loss of intervertebral disc height. A midline disc extrusion is noted which measures approx. 5 mm in AP dimension.
The peripheral annulus is torn.
The thecal sac is indented in the midline.
The central spinal canal is borderline stenotic.
Moderate fact arthropathy is present.
Mild bilateral neural foraminal canal stenosis is present.” WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Please help me understand.
The next step the Dr. told me is epidural injections.
Is this ok?
