So 2 weeks after my second scan [ which should have been CINE but my dappy GP ordered a normal one grrr] I was expecting it to say excatley the same to be honest. here it goes
The cerebella tonsils are noted to extend low in the foramen magnum, there is no significant dilation of the ventricular system.
At C3/4 there is a moderately large osteodiscal bulge posteriorly laterally on the left, It extends into contact with a slightly impinges on the left side of the spinal cord, at this level there is a pronounced narrowing of the left inter vertebral foramen and impingement on the associated nerve root. No significant disc prolapse or spinal stenosis is demonstrated on the remainder of the cervical spine
i have no idea what to make of this really, I specifically asked when i had my MRI that the size of the herniation is noted on my report for my records. and to me it looks like the cervical area is pretty messed up.
