... Hi all. I have been reading many of your posts for some time now, but never posted until now. I have decided to have neck surgery and I want to share my situation and invite your thoughts and comments. Iím a 47 year old male. For nearly two years, I have had intermittent numbness/tingling in my right forearm, hand and 3rd and 4th fingers (along the path of the ulnar... (17 replies)
... Hi. I have been through PT, chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy, and three Epidural Steroid Injections (in L5S1 only). I've been focussed on L5-S1 with neuro because that's the major pain generator right now. They are talking PLIF. Sent MRI report to Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for a second opinion and I see them Thursday. They are concerned with the... (2 replies)

... Thank you for your input. I am no longer seeking chiropractic care after reading about possible risks with cervical issue and certainly don't see him as an expert on this issue. I am hopeful to get some answers tomorrow. (2 replies)
... Chiropractors know the spine - I'll give them that - but I wouldn't trust them to give me advice on surgical intervention. From the MRI quote it seems that the protrusion abuts the front of the spinal cord. Ventral is also used in terms of the root that exits the cord, a protrusion, or stenosis there, can be operated on with endoscopic foraminal surgery. You may want to... (2 replies)
... Hi.....At C4-5 I have a herniation where the disc touches the cord but does not compress and C5-6 distorts the cord on the left. I have hand tightness and cannnot close into a fist as well as numbness down side of right arm into fingers. Gait imbalance at times...Last night I awakened with more numbness in whole arm, but shook it out. A NS at Mayo diagnosed and gave me... (5 replies)
... I have an appointment with a highly recommended neuro in 2 weeks. I am not sure how PT is going to fix my large herniation but am going to get it set up while I am waiting to see the neuro. Hopefully, it won't make things worse. ... (5 replies)
... Hi I did get some additional info along with copies of my MRI for my own review. I have a large herniation at c5-6 that is flattening the cord on the right. I also have a small herniation at c6-7. I have a neuro appt in 2 weeks. The ortho set me up for PT but told me injections were a waste and I would likely need surgery. The cord compression is scary. Are you scheduled for... (5 replies)
... Thanks. I did get a lot more information on my last visit. My c5-6 is herniated and flattening the cord on the right side. My c6-7 is bulging pretty good too. I have an appt with a neuro in 2 weeks and will start PT on Friday. The ortho that I saw said they wouldn't even bother with injections as they wouldn't help. I guess ill know more after the neuro visit. The pressing on... (5 replies)
... NS recommended 3 level ACDF based on my MRI findings, but I am torn whether to go for the surgery or not. I do not have any pain in my neck or in my arms. My only symptoms/issues are weak right arm and occasional neck spasms. I am more worried about the consequence of not having the surgery immediately and how long can it be postponed. I am in mid 30's so concerned having... (7 replies)

No prevertebreal soft tissue... (0 replies)
... Please find blow my 2014 Jan MRI findings: I have seen 3 doctors so far, one recommended Epidural, the other recommended PT and the last one recommended 3 level ACDF. My right arm is getting weaker and I can see that my right arm biceps is not as strong as the left one. Any advice would help... I am in my 30's so concerned about doing ACDF at this age but at the same time... (0 replies)

... Radiologists usually rate abnormalities as minimal/mild/moderate/severe, with "moderate" having a general meaning of "borderline problematic". However, in the presence of an abnormally narrow spinal canal, even "mild" abnormalities can be significant. In the case of your C5-6 "disk bulge" - which may actually be a herniation, per the reference to "disk material" impinging... (5 replies)

... Hi All, My story: ACDF C5-6 in 2007. ACDF C6-7 in 2011. I've been having excruciating pain for about a week when I put my shampoo on my head (no joke). I decided to call my neurosurgeon and he ordered an MRI and x-ray. I don't have the report but I came home and looked at the images on CD. It looks like a huge herniation and spinal cord compression at C4-5. I... (1 replies)

... I'm 25 y/o and have been told in the past that I have scoliosis...(this was just by an ortho looking at my shoulders; it was actually an appt for my son & he pointed this out just by looking at me) Anyway...no tests/xrays/nothing...I just kinda forgot about it... and now (5 years later) due to both of my hands going numb, (and I was diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel)...
