... I recently had a C5-C6 laminectomy and fusion after years of issues, but three years of pain on a scale of <6 of 10 daily. Also involved were DDD, stenosis, and bone spurs. We went conservative for a very long time: P/T, medications, exercises. I wasn't a candidate for spinal injections due to having an ACM-1 diagnosis (on top of being allergic to the medications...

Post-op ACDF C5-C6
Sep 28, 2012
... Hey all, I had an ACDF at C5-C6 with hip autograft on September 18. Prior to surgery, I had severe spinal cord compression and nerve root compression. I have some pretty awful muscle spasms in my traps, and my graft site is really painful. I do have very good ROM in my neck (I don't move it too much, my first post-op visit is Monday), but it cracks sometimes. I am... (1 replies)
... (kind of long story, sorry) Hi. I am 32 years old, female. I have always, as long as I remember had all-over pain, which would eventually be diagnosed as fibromyalgia and also narcolepsy. On 31 December 2000 I was involved in an incident, and that is when I began to have pain in the left side of my neck. It has gradually gotten worse since then. Doctors always just told me...

... I do wish you all the best with your post opp. I can relate with you every step of the way as i had c4/c5 and c6/c7 posterior foraminotomy 9 weeks ago. The first 2 weeks i felt pretty good and seemed to get worse after that and shaking alot and burning in finger tips but i was constantly reasured that this was normal as the nerves are now coming back to life after 7 years and...

... << (I believe this is due to the C6 nerve root being compressed.) >> Yes, it's pretty much textbook C6 radiculopathy. Of course, that means that your right C5-6 FORAMEN is being impinged upon, which the radiologist doesn't mention, and he should have. Still, such a large disk protrusion is likely to affect at least one of the foramina. How did he do the test for... (9 replies)
... Thank you WebDozer and Lyn Angel. I made the mistake of writing my post from my phone late at night! (what a disaster) Ok here is my MRI Findings: The cerebellar tonsils are in normal position. The spinal cord is normal in caliber and signal. There is a straightening of the cervical spine. The vertebral body heights and bone marrow signal are preserved. There is a... (9 replies)
... dcoday....Hi, I don't know if I can help you, but I just wanted to say welcome to the spinal health boards. I am so sorry to hear what has happened to you and I hope today finds you feeling a bit better :( There is at the beginning of the health boards here ACDF "under sticky notes, I think it is called" some helpful notes about what you will need to have at home before and...

... Hi! I am new to this board. I have been reading a lot of the postings and have found them very helpful. Back in April after an episode of vomiting from a stomach bug i had extreme pain In my neck. I went to my GP and she suggested Physical Therapy. My x-ray showed cervical straightening. The Orthopaedic Dr said it was due to muscle spasms. About one month later i went for a... (9 replies)

... 1st MRI April 2nd - 2nd MRI June 28th Symptoms have gotten worse since initial MRI back in April- stabbing pain in right arm, can't sleep on either side anymore - have to be on back and max of 2-3 hours sleep at a time and wake up with a lot of pain. It said what I posted above about the C5-C6. Also said under impression: Moderate right paracentral / foraminal disc... (3 replies)
... Regarding your PRIOR MRI report... 1) when was it? 2) how have your symptoms changed since then? 3) what, exactly, did it say about the C5-6 level? (3 replies)
... Hi all Tuesday I had a bilateral posterior foraminotomy at c5,6. No pain med has worked for me, morphine, Dilantin, fentynal, roxycodone, Valium or flexeril. I stayed 2 nights in hospital because of pain. I have to have help to get up and down. I'm not a large person, but am just suffering. Feels like I was "the nurse pointed out" "smashed with a baseball bat" in my thoracic,... (7 replies)
C5 c6 Questions
Jun 29, 2012
... OK, just got my MRI back if anyone can explain in english, especially the ventral subarachnoid impression, I'd appreciate it - all I could find was that it had to do with the brain and freaked me right out C5-C6: There is a broad posterior disc/osteophyte complex which is effacing the ventral subarachnoid space and causing mild central canal stenosis. There is very mild... (4 replies)
... hi - I am 5 days post op so will keep this short but you guys have symptoms close to mine so wanted to chime in a bit...to start - 36/female/active/no medicines/no historical medical issues of any kind. woke up 5/11/2012 with a slight numb feeling to right foot and some slight ankle pain - nothing in memory to attribute issue to. Nothing was disruptive, but realized... (10 replies)
... The radiologist says you have only mild-to-moderate left C5-6 foraminal stenosis, but it's clearly worse than that, as you are developing symptoms of C6 radiculopathy. I didn't meant to imply that you were over 60, only that there are a LOT of people walking around with undiagnosed spinal problems. I had a C3-4 ACDF at age 44 to fix a badly herniated disk, followed by a... (3 replies)

... Thanks for taking the time. Two months from injury to surgery doesn't seem like very long. Supposedly, the longer you wait, the more likely damage is permanent, but the time threshold I've been given is more like six months. No, going to a chiropractor wasn't the right thing to do, but pretty much no one knows that. At the least, the chiropractor should have had the MRI... (13 replies)

... Colabono - Most people posting here do not report myelomalacia, or symptoms quite like yours. It would be very helpful if you would be so kind as to briefly describe your injury, the symptoms that it caused, how long from then until your surgery, and what the radiologist's MRI report said, at least about the C5-6 level....
