I found my original cervical MRI. Here are the gory details. Perhaps this will help the veterans give me a little more insight / personalization with their experience!!

MRI Report
=======
Findings :

There is a maintenance of cerivcal lordosis. There are no focal regions of signal alteration in the vertebral marrow. The cervical spinal cord is intrinsically normal in size without focal signal abonormality. There is no cord compression. There are mild spondylotic changes of the cerrvical spine as follows :

At c2-3, there is no disc bulge, nueral foraminal narrowing or central stensosis.

At c3-4, there is a mild right uncoverterbal joint hypertrophy resulting in mild right neural foraminal narrowing. There is no central stenosis.

At c4-5, there i smilt right uncoverterbal joint hypertrophy resulting in mild right neural foraminal narrowing. There is no central stenosis.

At C5-6, there is loss of disc height and signal. There is a left paracetral disc protrusion-ridge complex which indents the thecal sac and narrows the left neural foramen. There is right uncovertebral joint hypertrophy resulting in mild right neural foramminal narrowing.

At C6-7, there is a a small disk bulge-ridge complex. There is no central canal stenosis or neural foraminal narrowing.

At C7-t1, there is no disc bulge, neural foraminal narrowing, or central canal stenosis.

At t1-2, there is decreased disc signal. There is no disc bulge, neural foraminal narrowing, or central canal stenosis.

IMPRESSION :

Left paracentral disc protrusion at C5/6 as described.


Intersting enough tho... I was operated on for my c5-6 C6 nerve. (as made evident above)

However, I just looked over my EMG and noticed this :

EMG/NERVE CONDUCTION STUDY IMPRESSIONS :

The distal motor latency, evoked response amplitude. motoro conduction velocity including across the elbow and F wave latencies were within normal limits in the left median and ulnar nerve. The median and ulnar sensory nerves are within normal limits.

EMG of the muscles of the left upper extermity revelaed polyphasic motor units with increased amplitude, increased duration, and decreased recruitment in the left deltoid and biceps.

EMG / NERVE CONDUCTION STUDY CONCLUSIONS :

There is electropysioloic evidence of *C5*?????? radiculopathy on the left.

Perhaps my original Neuro mis-interpreted the nerve root involvement?
