Thx for this support site. Today,I received results of xray, Reverse Spondylolisthesis,C-5,C-6 w/severe degeneration,spurring into spinal canal.Initially,I was seen for severe shoulder pain. Now, I am facing that I will need cervical surgery. I was referred to spine doc,w/no info. and since I live in rural island community in Alaska, need to wait two weeks before I can get to the city . Does anyone have any experience with this ?I have a high level of anxiety and fear, as too what this means. Surgery?? Does anyone know if their are laser options? Appreciate any feedback.
