I am ready to pull my hair out! Two and a half years ago the Dr I
> ordered a MRI and a Tarlov Cyst was found at S2 level measuring 1cm.
> The MRI was taken because of the pain I was experiencing.
> Now two and a half years later the pain is worse and I am finally
> for another MRI. After the test the man doing the MRI asked if I had
> ever seen what mine looked like ,I said no. He showed me the one
> 2 years ago and one he thought to be another Tarlov Cyst.
> When the nurse called me today to give me the results of the MRI she
> stated the cyst from 2 years ago had not changed and everything
> looked fine. I questioned her asking the size and she replied there
> was nothing about the size. I also asked about the other he saw at 3
> level and she said nothing was said about that.
> I just got home from picking up my MRI report and it reads: There
> two Tarlov Cysts identified. One measuring 1.75 cm on the right at
> S2 level and one measuring 1.20cm on the left at S3 level. Both are
> stable are of doubtful significance!
> I can not begin to tell you all how upset I truly am.
