... Here are results for my 3 most recent MRI's: Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar: I've had back and neck pain for years. Every MRI I have gotten over the years I have had to beg a doctor to order for me. I've had lumbar and cervical studies in the past that have shown degenerative changes, osteophytes, and severe cervical stenosis that resulted in a C4-5 ACDF in Nov 2006. I... (0 replies)
... I developed a crippling pain in my back and it was a different pain then prior to surgery. I also have a displaces S1 nerve root because I have so much scar tissue. I am in constant pain and now live on pain meds, which I am not happy about and they still don't control my pain. ... (9 replies)
... aight away. I think you're right and the two issues are not related. My neuro surgeon says the sciatic pain is a 'small hernia' due to spinal stenosis on L4, L5, S1 and he can free that nerve with a laminectomy, as leg pain is easier to heal than back pain. ... (6 replies)

... Hello Lorgirl :wave: I also experienced severe bicep & tricep pain for many months prior to my surgery. The pain was also intense in both my shoulders and I developed bilateral frozen shoulder due to the pain and not being able to use my arms as much.

... Hello Everyone :wave: I had gone into the hospital on a Monday and came home Wednesday. Prior to my surgery I was told that I may have to stay longer as I have diabetes and they needed to keep an eye on my blood sugars. I also developed pneumonia and was still able to come home as the IV antibiotic meds worked great. I did have a one level fusion on C5-6. :angel:... (7 replies)
... Jason, Have you consulted a neurosurgeon. I read your report and while you have past chronic problems with your back, you do have some injuries that need to be address by a neurosurgeon and taking pain medication is not going to solve your problem. In my opinion you definately need surgery to relieve the pressure off your spinal cord. You symptoms of incontinence (not... (12 replies)

It eventually become bilateral to the thighs... (4 replies)
