Not sure: Epidural fat is common and it can get thickened. We call this epidural lipomatosis and it can narrow the spinal canal where the nerve roots run. It is somewhat controversial as to whether this is clinically significant. ...Read more

MRI of lumbar spine showed regions of focal fatty replacement and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine and chronic wedge deformities. Should I worry?

MRI of lumbar spine showed regions of focal fatty replacement and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine and chronic wedge deformities. Should I worry?

Not too much: The area of fatty replacements and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine are not significant, and pose no future problem for you. However, the chronic wedge deformities may be due to prior trauma with injury to the vertebral bodies, or possible osteopenic compression fractures. Discuss with you doctor about possibly osteoporosis or other bone abnormality, and how to limit further injury. ...Read more

Can colon tumors be seen on a lumbar spine mri?

Not really: It is windowed to focus on the lumbar spine so you don't really appropriately visualize the colon on the lumbar spine mri. This particular study is not a good study at all to evaluate the colon. To properly evaluate the colon, ask your doctor to inform you on what study is needed to properly visualize the colon. ...Read more

U hav lots t do: Pain management is useful if it helps you to move normally while you heal. If you smoke, you must stop. What ever type of activity/lifestyle produces the damage to your back must be modified. Physical therapy for a core strengthening, yoga type stretching home exercise program that incorporates proper breathing and body awareness is the pathway that I have seen the most success. Patience! ...Read more
