Hi all. I'd like your opinions and advice on my diagnosis. My ns said my myelogram showed severe cervical spondylosis, HNP (herniated discs), and spurs compressing spinal cord. Levels C5-6 & C6-7. She said my discs are gone and bones are sitting on each other. Also have straightening of the lordotic curve. She said we'd try pt first, then injections, then talk about surgery. She said she was afraid to do surgery because the arthritis is so bad above and below those levels.
I start pt Thursday and home traction. Only meds for this are neurontin & flexeril. I'm afraid pt will make it worse. I can hardly turn my head or use my arm. Any advice? Thanks, Debbie
