    Update!!! sorry kind of long

    It has been a while since i have logged on to these forums but i have an update on my scoliosis.I went to see a new doctor about foot pain and he sent me for more tests MRI,Xrays,Bone scan.The results are kind of disturbing,Here is a run down about everything found.
    These are from Xray results
    -Scoliosis upper thoracic spine to mid thoracic spine
    -Hemivertebra in T1 and T2 and C7
    -Scoliosis convexity left(lumbar spine)
    -block vertebra L1,L2
    -L3 is larger than normal
    -L1-L3 spinal fusion
    These are MRI results
    -Sacrum is hypoplastic
    -Tethered cord at the S1 to S2 level(associated with lipoma)
    -Syrinx is noted
    -Degenerative disc disease
    -Lumbar nerve damage
    -Osteoarthritis in my back,Right knee,Left foot
    Iam seeing a Neurosurgeon on October 20,We will see how it goes....

    I currently do not have copies of my bone scan results at home with me

    late reply to old member

    Angelico this is WAY overdue and I didn't know you (and you probably won't get this) but I hate to see unanswered threads, especially one like yours.

    It's as if no one cares , but I'm sure they do. Probably, this sub-forum is just less frequented. I care, and I don't even know you by name! But I know you as a suffering human being,

    Be well, and write again - maybe the same post, updated and put on another forum. Sometimes we have to shout to be heard but it's just because there's so much other noise - not because no one is interested!

    For that matter just look - well over a thousand views to your thread! That's extraordinary. Guess no one wanted to take the initiative!

    I agree, I am sure people do care, we're all in the same boat. But some of us are in deeper water and when I see a post like that, I cringe and wish I could help but don't have the knowledge or experience. I too, hate to see unanswered posts.

    I hope Angelicoo got the help she needed.
