... Hi I havent been on here for awhile. Im still waiting for surgery, been 3.5 years now since I went to my GP and they knew i had a history of spondylolisthesis.

... Havent posted here since my surgery, thought I would give a progress report for those here who are considering having this done. First a little background. This was a very difficult decision for me because I was never in much pain, it was always more a radiculopathy issue (right arm/hand). Symptoms would get worse, then improve, but the numbness and tingling never went away... (0 replies)
... I'm no expert but have a similar MRI story. From how it reads I would say the more prominent issue is the severe foraminal stenosis (C5-C6) which Webdozer quite eloquently explained the in the board a few above yours labeled Foraminal stenosis.
