... Hi!!! I have several problems with my cervical spine. About 2 1/2 yrs ago I had a Partial Discectomy/laminectomy of C6-C7. Unfortunately, the laminectomy made my spine unstable and when I hit my head hard, the two vertebrae collapsed on each other and are now rubbing together, the disc was shot and resulted with 6mm disc material compressing the spinal column. I am... (2 replies)

... It didn't help for myself either. I'm in serious pain all the time. All the doctors do is put me on muscle relaxants. Gee go to sleep constantly or always in a fog. I have C-1 fused to the base of my scull. C-2 fused with C-3 and c-5 and C-6 fused together. The doctors tell me no surgery can be performed because it is fused together to tightly. I wish I could help you. I... (6 replies)
... Dee, consider consulting Dr. Jho in Pittsburgh as one possibility. You can send his office a copy of your MRI films and he will review them, give you a call and discuss if he can help you with his surgical procedures. I know little about congenital fusion, but I can make some guesses; your vertebrete have joined , bypassing normal disc material that separates them. I... (6 replies)
... I Would See An Orthopedic Spinal Specialist. I Am Not Familiar With Congential Fusion But Would Think That They Would Have To Remove All The Bone Spurs That Grew Over The Disc Space To Free Up The Nerves. ... (6 replies)
... Dee, I have a herniated disc at C5-6 with bone spurs, likely pinched nerves and spinal cord compression. I saw a Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in Spinal Surgery last week who said surgery in my case in inevitable. I've been in PT and Chiro for 3 months which has relieved some daily pain for a couple of hours, but no more than that. I am planning on getting a 2nd opinion... (6 replies)

As soon as I heard I needed surgery I came straight to the boards, I found mostly horror stories. Mine turned out to be a good story.

... Hi, thanks for your letter. My chiropractor wouldn't ever do a treatment on my neck because he knew I had the fusion done, so that's one smart thing I did. Even before I went to him in the first place, I had MRI's done one year after the fusion ordered by my regular doctor. ... (3 replies)

... Is the foraminal narrowing causing you any nerve problems? Do you have pain or tingling or numbness? I think you are right about this being of less concern than your c6-c7 probem. Hope everything goes well with your surgery! If you still are having problems after you have recovered from surgery you might consider having an EMG study to see if any nerves are being pinched by...

... Never had a health related issue in my life, was helping put a new roof on my house this summer, and ached like a mutha, so 4 months later (I thought it would go away) I went to the family doc, he said knotted muscles, didn't go away, went to a chiro, he had xrays done of neck and shoulder, and low and behold, I was born with almost NO disk between c6-c7, and bone spurs...

... Glad to hear you're doing so well TLM. I go the my neuro next week to see about surgery for C6-7 also. I have a ruptured disk due to a car wreck 6/99 that's causing a lot of pain and weakness in my right shoulder and arm. It's also starting to affect my left arm. I might have to hold on surgery for a little while cause my mom's due to have surgery (she's been having... (1 replies)
... Yes, thank you Jon, thank you for responding. I never even considered them operating from the front. It seems as though they'd go in from the side, seeings how that's where the bone spurs are and most of the pain (right side of neck) How many "opinions" do you think one should get before deciding on surgery?
