... Hi Mona and HTF, Thanks for the replies. Turns out I don't have L'Hermitte's. I still don't have any definite answers but I have more clues. I had a new Cervical MRI done on 12/19 - it shows the same c5-6 herniation but now there is slight spinal cord compression. Also, I had abnormal finger reflexes that my NS says is unequivical for cord compression. But I have... (13 replies)
... thank everyone for their replies...Here is the story as of this morning...I just drove to my surgeon's office on my way home from work yesterday afternoon (I had to lead a department meeting...otherwise I wouldn't have gone)...I just demanded to see him despite the fact that the secretary said he was backed up 2hours...so after a 2hour wait I was the last patient of the...
