... Trauma - This all started with a snowboarding injury in Feb. 2007. My 360 :jester: turned into a 270 :angel: and I landed hard face first. NS postulated I hyperextended my neck and bad whiplash occurred. MRI/X-rays showed I suffered a compression fracture at C6 and over 5 years, this lead to DDD, reversal of normal lordosis, herniated disks, moderate stenosis, myelopathy,... (3 replies)

Greetings!!!

... Just a few lines to thank you all for your generosity. The fact that you openly share your fears - your struggles with and/or triumphs over them - has allowed me to understand that I just might make it through my own current and upcoming ordeals. I'm having surgery next week for my condition (Cervical Stenosis with disc herniation at all levels, from moderate to severe). At... (19 replies)

... Dianne ~ I see you are having Anterior surgery and that will be a lot easier then what I had. Sorry I didn't see that before my last post. :o Just this last June I had ACDF of C6-7 and about 2 years ago I had ACDF of C4-5, C5-6 with a corpectomy. The recovery from anterior was not too bad but I still don't see going back to work so soon after surgery. Where you work will... (28 replies)
... Although it might seem very hard to do. It can be done. I remember when I was released from the hospital last year after my 2 cervical(C-4 to C7 Anterior & C4 to T1 Posterior) surgeries I did drive a partial of the way home. Mainly because we were in Louisville, Ky. & my wife was so frazzled about me being in pain & the traffic that's up there. One thing for sure have all... (2 replies)
... So when you look down, I suppose that would be putting backwards pressure on disks, if you had any left. Could it be that C3-4 is getting pushed back into your spinal cord, just a little? The leg thing is odd. Why would the LENGTH of time walking matter, unless you are perhaps changing your posture a little as you tire? Anyway, I don't know what you can DO about all... (3 replies)

... Hello all, I was a squeeky wheel here seven years ago and after sussesfull surgery sort of faded away. Well I am back. Same old story I am hoping someone in the know can help sort these terms out. I apologize for spelling & othet typos, but hands are numb and my "fat fumble fingers" just dont seem to do what i want them to. Aslo I think the gabapentin makes me stupid. ... (10 replies)
... ne that preferred the laminectomy was older and said that this approach was the "gold standard", as it's been done that way for many years. The one espousing the corpectomy was a younger person that had different training, possibly meaning a more "modern" approach? ... (8 replies)
... the laminaplasty over a laminectomy, as it would help maintain stability in my neck. It was possible in my case because of my previous surgery. Had I not had the corpectomy earlier, a laminectomy would have been about my only choice, as the laminaplasty would not have opened up the spinal column enough. ... (4 replies)

... Another person with a corpectomy! That's unusual. I had a C5 & C6 corpectomy (fused C4-C7) almost 2 years ago and a C3/C4/C5 laminaplasty 3 months ago. My neck had been making noises before any of the surgeries, but really started to crunch after the corpectomy. It hasn't been getting any better either. I've been living with the noise for 2 years now, and I guess it'll... (5 replies)

... I am 4 months postop ACDF with 2 level fusion C4-C6 and corpectomy. I am interested at some point in finding out the new condition of my neck after surgery. I do have a 2in x 1in titanium plate in my neck. Is there some special form of MRI that is available for me that will give good pictures of the neck with a titanium plate in there? Or, must I go and get the high... (3 replies)
