... Hi again.... I went to an ortho-spine surgeon on Monday for a 2nd opinion on my MRI that I first wrote about in this thread.

C5/6 being the worse with the matter extremely close to touching the actual cord. He believes in am getting most of my... (11 replies)

... Welcome to the board. The part of the report you copied would make more sense if your radiculopathy were felt on the right side. As you suggested there are issues at C5-6 and C7-8 that are causing the thecal sac to be reduced in diameter....first, "stenosis" is a term that means narrowing. It can occur mainly in two locations in the spine...in the central canal and in... (3 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)

... 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)...

... I found a site on line that listed a million questions to ask your surgeon prior to surgery. I was at a lose of specific questions to ask. I am not sure but they were general for any .surgery and then some specific for the type of surgery. How long have you been completing this particular surgery? How many have you done? What approach will you use? How long of a surgery?... (25 replies)
... Jas... I am sure it has not escaped you that the MRI report stresses right-side problems, but your symptoms seem to be predominantly left-side. Also, your list of symptoms may have several cervical nerves participating, but those symptoms would stem, I believe, more from the C5 and C6 nerves, which come from the C4-5 and C5-6 levels. So, if I only knew your symptoms, and then... (25 replies)
... Thanks Jenny for the detailed explanation. Couldn't have been explained better. (2 replies)
... There are 2 issues that can lead to paralysis in the spine....the spinal nerves and the spinal cord. The spinal nerves peel off the cord at each vertebra(except C1) and go out to the body, and where they leave the cord, they can be compressed by herniated disks, or arthritic bone spurs or any combination of those 2. The compression is rated as minimal, mild, moderate and... (2 replies)
... Due to a neck and shoulder pain I did an MRI. The result summary reads out as following * Left posterio-lateral disc-osteophyte complex at c5-6 level is indenting the thecal sac, left exiting nerve root and mildly narrowing the left neural foramina * Right posterio-lateral osteophyte at c4-5 level is indenting the thecal sac. No significant root indentation or foraminal... (2 replies)
