thanks for asking for me
I'm glad you had your ureteral stent removed.
MRI scan is much better at looking at nerves in the spine and pelvis and sacrum.
make sure they scan the sacrum and lumbar spine with Iv contrast as well
are you having a hard time reading my response?
yes, the CT scan would have seen cancer spread to the spine most likely
the MRI scan would also see as well.
it could be from a slipped disk or a pinched siatia nerve possibly.
hopefully it is not from cervical cancer spread.
ask your doctors about this
I don't know the stage of your cervical cancer and how aggressive it might have been.
yes, the CT scan being clear is good
and is good enough to say you don't have cervical cancer spread.
sometimes steroid medications are good to help decrease swelling there.
NSAIDs like advil or aleve can help decrease inflammation.
also steroid injections sometimes can help in the area to decrease pain and inflammation.
does this help?
