Mrireport l4l5disc bulge bilatral lumberlordosis lost spondylosis deformanswithdddwith cauda equina compression and bilateral compresive radiculopathy?

MRI report: This means you have some spinal arthritis with some nerve compression (lateral compression) and some central compression of the caudal equine (where other defending nerves travel). There is also loss of the normal lumbar lordosis curve which may signify back spasm. This can only be interpreted based on your symptoms and neurological exam. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Double Crush: Sounds like you may have what's known as "double crush" phenomenon. Both cervical spine and entrapment of the ulnar/median nerve causing symptoms. Certainly, carpal tunnel and/or cubital tunnel release is easier and less risky than neck surgery and usually considered before neck surgery. Unfortunately, diabetes puts you at high risk for recurrence of carpal/cubital tunnel syndrome. ...Read more

Is induced cerebral hypoperfusion reversible?

Is induced cerebral hypoperfusion reversible?

Maybe. Probably.: Cerebral hypoperfusion literally means "not enough blood to the brain." so whether or not it is reversible depends on the cause for the decreased blood flow, and "induced" typically refers to intentionally causing this, such as for brain surgery or diagnostically. If this is the case, then yes, it's reversible. You should ask your doctor for more information rather than "medspeak.". ...Read more
