K back .....worried might lose the entire post.....lol

forgot what im up too.......so much........

so then back to neurosurgeon and he says acdf @ C4-5

my Query was , what about C5-6

but first he wants me to go back to neurologist to check out neuro stuff , as in neuro diseases to rule out

so ive done that and have appt with neurosurgeon very soon again......

also had the full lung function test at the hospital , not like the lesser one they can do.......My O2 sats are not very good

am seeing my GP for results in couple days


oh theres so much more......
but ill just post scans remarks

jan 2009
excert
cervical spine x-ray and ct

advanced degenerative changes are noted from C4-T1, with narrowing of disc spaces, sclerosis of articular margins and facet joints. most of the flexion/extension movements are occuring at the C3-C4.
the exit foraminal show osteophytic encroachment and narrowing in the C5-T1 region on both sides. precervicalsoft tissueshows noabnormalities and no cervical ribs were seen. C1-C2 shows early degenerativechanges.

there are osteophtyes bulging posteriorly between C5-T1 , which is impinging on the spinal cordand the lateral nerve roots between C5 and T1


sorry put 2009 first forgot 2007

heres 2007

x-ray and ct

on plain x-rays in the cervical spine, there is narrowing of the C4-C5, C5-C6, and C6-C7 disc spaces with anterior spondylytic lipping at thses levels.
neurocentral joint degeneration changes are noted narrowing the interveretbral foramina at C4-C5 bialtaerally and at C6- C7 on the right and C6-C7 on the left.
neurocentral joint degenerative change is noted narrowing the intervebral foramina on the right at C4-C5, C5-C6, and C6-C7 on the left.

in the thoracic spine there is a scoliosis convex to the right inferiorly, there are diffuse thoracic spine degenerative changes with anterior spondylotic lipping noted diffusely

on CT , at the C4-C5 level a discovertebral bar is noted paracentrally on the right causing prefforaminal narrowing indenting the thecal sac paracentrally on the right.
there is neural exit foraminal narrowing bilaterally at this level most severe on the right with likely compression of the exiting nerve roots and ganglia

at C5-C6 a broad based discovertebral bar is noted indenting the thecal sac most markedly on the right. neurocentral joint degenerative changeis noted narrowing narrowing the intervetebralforamina bilaterally

at C6-C7 neurocentral joint degenerationchange is noted narrowing the intervetebral foramina bilaterally

in the upper thoracic spine anterior spondylotiv lippingis noted. at T5- T 6 small right sided paracentral discvertebral bar indents the thecal sac

conclusion degenerative changes as described most severe in the cervical spine C4-C7



i also have some scoliosis in my lumbar and my sacrum, sacrum has moderate degeneration as per old scan(2009). i have scans going back many years , but for now will just keep to cervical, my lumbar needs a fusion



march 2011
MRI scan

cervical

minor straitening of lorsodis

bone marrow.....altered marrow changes asscoiated with disc degeneration most prominant at the C4-C5 level

Cord intact....no altered signal intensity

transverse images were performedfrom C3-T2 levels

C3-C4 disc osteophyte complex associated with moderate canal stenosis, minor right foraminal narrowing

C4-C5 disc osteophyte complexwith small focal disc herniation and osteophyte complex to the right of mid line involving the right foramin with right foraminal narrowing.
canel stenosis is moderate to severe in nature only a thin trace of csf fluid present anteriorly and posteriorly. anterior cord flattened sided

C5-C6 disc osteophyte complexassociated with moderate to severe canal stenosis with only a thin trace of csf fluid anterior and posterior to cord. right foraminal narrowing with disc osteophtye complex and unconvetebral degeneration associated with nerve root impingement

C6-C7 disc oteophyte complex asscociated with mild to moderate canal stenosis with right sided disc osteophyte complex encroaching ion the foramen, also on the left with bilateral foraminal narrowing.
canal stenosis moderate in nature

conclusion
multilevel disc osteophyte complexes and moderate to severe canal stenosis as described most marked at the C4-5 and C5-6 levels

whewwwww im wiped
