Hi all. I just found these boards and I am looking forward to getting some information here. I am going back to the surgeon today after a round of PT, an ESI, and a round of oral steroids. I have had no relief from the headaches, numbness and shooting pains down my arms after any of this.
My MRI shows the following to be the major issues.
At C5-6, there is posterior disc bulging with a left paracentral disc herniation exhibiting rostral extension and producing cord impingernent and canal narrowing, There appears to be roughly 4 mm of rostrat extension of this disc herniation. Left-sided foraminal stenosis is produced.
At C6-7, there is canal stenosis produced by posterior disc bulging and a moderate-sized right paracentral disc herniation, Cord impingement is produced. There is bilateral foraminal stenosis.
There are smaller issues at C3-4 and 4-5.
Hopefully I find out something today.
