Nerves pressed, had cauda equina, did surgery, bladder not emptying, repeated MRI & found little fluid collection.Doctor order nerve conduction test.Why ?
True true unrelated: My guess is that the nerve conduction test was to see if you had residual nerve damage from the initial problem. Surgery can relieve the pressure but the nerve damage might take up to 2 years to heal - or not heal at all. The EMG was likely to assess the extent of the problem to direct further therapy. Ask your doc why, too. ...Read more

Im 20 CtScan showed 3mm calculus in urinary bladder minimal right hydroureter possibility recently passed ureteral calulus what does this mean ?
Passed kidney stone: If the CT showed a stone in the bladder and some mild hydroureter, it shows that there is some mild swelling of the kidney tube. Since most stones in the urinary tract pass from the kidney to the bladder through the ureter, the swelling likely indicates that a stone caused some degree of blockage before getting to the bladder. You may want to see a urologist to get your stone risks evaluated ...Read more
My scoliosis xrays show 3 neural foramen perineural nerve root sleeve cysts, 1 measuring 9mm l1-2, c7-t1, t1-t2, all are right sided. What are these?
Neural cysts: In most instances, these are benign (not cancer) expansions of the nerves, and they are typically seen as 'incidental findings' and often do not need treatment. They are typically not associated with pain, but if the doctor treating you -who probably looked at the imaging studies- is concerned, further work up is indicated with a gadolinium enhanced scan. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
