... I posted in another post my actual MRI report. I was called by my neurologist's nurse to say that I had severe cord impingement. When I got the report, it did not read exactly the same way. As to if the previous fusion caused the problems I am having now, well I guess the answer is yes. It puts additional stress above and below the fusion causing a cascade effect. Many... (6 replies)
... Calm, did the fusion cause the eventual impingement? I am wondering if I have a situation similar to yours. It's a long story, but I am very curious to hear more about your situation. Also, is the "hump" and actual hump in your spine? Please give more details if you can. (6 replies)

... Hi Chris, I also had a C5-C6 herniation with cord impingement. It was also pinching a nerve and I had the same symptoms in my left arm.

I am hoping I will also have less neck pain,... (15 replies)
