Soo..got my new MRI results back, here's the laundry list. Maybe one of you can tell me which surgery I'm gonna need.
C3-4 3mm anterilosthesis, of c3 with uncovering of the disc. Mild endplate osteophites. Severe facet arthropathy is noted bilaterally. Mild right foraminal and right lateral recess narrowing is noted.
C4-5 minimal anterolisthesis, mild arthopathy
c5-6 Central disc protrusion with bilateral uncoverebral joint osteophyte. Indention of ventral surface of the cord.
In the impression they give me spondylosis of c3-4 and c4-5 particularly facet joints at c3-4
At c5-6Central disc protrusion with osteophyte with mild compression of the midline cord.
Now after my PM doctor got these results, I was swiftly referred to a neurosurgeon,(going a week from today) and told I would not be getting any further facet or epidural injections or would there be another attempt at RF.
Soooo......guess I'm probably getting surgery huh? Anyone have similar problems? Surgical procedures? Words of wisdom? Would certainly love to hear some!! Feeling a bit insecure because I don't really understand what they do to fix this.
