... It looks like you have disc budget/herniated disc at the C5-6 level that is causing some pressure on the nerve root on the the left side and small amount on the Right side. You also have some DDD or arthritis that has caused the area where the nerve root goes through to narrow. You also have some DDD (Osteophyte complex) at the c6-7 level but it not severe enough to cause... (3 replies)
... I have diffuse disc desiccation in all my spine. I have herniated disk and bulges in my cervical, thoracic and lumbar. I just received my Cervical MRI Findings: C5-6 3 mm left paracentral and foraminal protrusion which indents the ventral cord and causes left-sided cord flattening and mild left-sided spinal stenosis with narrowing of the canal to 9.0 mm anterior posterior....

... cervical spine surgery. The radiology report doesn't provide enough information to suggest what treatment you might need. It would depend on the extent of the cord flattening and whether there is cord compression. ... (5 replies)
... But if those other discs have now reached the level of severe central canal stenosis... surgery is needed. I know people who had spinal cord flattening with no symptoms until they started tripping all over themselves that they got an MRI and then when straight to surgery. I don't want to wait to that... ... (1 replies)
... spinal cord is normal. ... (8 replies)
... Me too. Mine looks worse than that. But anything under 10 mm is considered absolute spinal stenosis and her's is 8 mm. (8 replies)
... Gee, if I'd seen that MRI initially, I might have had a very different reaction. Clearly, you have two herniated disks (and something coming from behind at C5-6, maybe a ligamentum flavum problem?), but they only seem to be effacing the spinal fluid (the light stuff), and not flattening or indenting the cord (the dark column). Heck, I could only wish that MY images looked that... (8 replies)
... However, if you have severe cord flattening, I don't see why anything below that level is not susceptible. I have cervical cord damage, and as many symptoms in my legs as in my arms. Maybe something to clear up with the docs. ... (7 replies)
... might not be a bad idea, either. If the cord is affected, ANYTHING below that level could be symptomatic, obviously including your legs. ... (3 replies)
... they happen to sit. but more often i see what i have in other peoples posts mostly because it happens to even be that 'skinnier' area within the neck as ventral cord flattening at usually only c 5 level. this was actually even on my initial MRI way back in 2001. ... (5 replies)
... C-5 C-6 level demonstrates posterior left paracentral disc herniation effacing the ventral CSF space with cord contact, flattening and encroaching on the exiting left C-6 nerve root. There is mild right foraminal narrowing secondary to uncinate process hypertrophy. Thanks to anyone who can interpret that. (11 replies)

... I had issues of a Disc flattening the spinal cord and I had a large amount of pain and nerve related issues (I had an EMG - Nerve study). And it showed nerve compression as related to the issues with my Discs. Are you currently seeing a Spinal Specialist? If you haven't seen anybody yet, I would recommend you see a Specialist. Especially, if you're having symptoms as a... (13 replies)

... Why doesn't he try having 2 ACDF surgeries in one year, and the second surgery with spinal cord flattening!! Plus when the spinal cord is flattened from what I know it takes a much longer time and even up to a year for the nerves to heal! ... (7 replies)
... Suzy Q....my heart goes out to you. I'm sorry you too are dealing with all of this. I have yet to discuss my results with the Physiatrist...so I don't yet know her take on things. I went and picked up my MRI as I was ready to hop on a plane to get figured out as I am so sick of being messed up with no answers. Well, the Radiologist report was in with the CD of my MRI. ...

... her comment was the last one showed improvement so it's moving in the right direction, but to satisfy me it was ordered. So now...protrusion is larger with flattening of the ventral cord. ... (21 replies)
