    Results by TOMORROW????? Who did you pay off??? HAHAHA.
    I hope you do find out what the deal is. I alwys love it when the docs tell patients and their families, "don't have the results yet". HELLO, wlak to radiology and look at the scan and track down a radiologist to READ IT NOW!
    I hope it reveals wht the problem is and that it is something easily fixed.
    GOOD LUCK!!!!

    excellent that you can get your own results! In my old hospital, they would monitor the employees and what we looked at in the computer, and we could be disciplined if we looked at our OWN results! They said that we might find out something bad and not have the advantage of having the doctor with us (yeah, like they are such a support system anyways!) sheesh i always thought this was a stupid policy. I hope everything works out well for you!!!

    Hey, here is what the MRI roughly showed ( I say roughly as I don't have the actual dictation in front of me). DJD, some scoliosis ( which was news to me), spinal stenosis with a bulging lumbar disc and narrowed lumbar neural space. Also, 3 "hotspots" which are most probably hemangiomas....Talking to the doc tomorrow...Anyone know the significance, if any, of those hemangiomas? Feeling ok, but still feel those twinges....

    Gee..I have the first 3 of your findings but without the 'hot spots'.

    Hope it's just dilated blood vessels due to injury of soft tissues near the sight......will keep you in my prayers and please let us know what you find out, OK?

    Glad your symptoms have calmed down a bit! (((HUGS)))
