Hi. I know you're not physicians but I'd like to get your thoughts on these results.
Impression: Disc degeneration with large posterior spur C5-6. There is stenosis at this level with no cord compression noted. There is severe right and moderate-to-severe left foraminal narrowing at this location due to uncovertebral joint spurring. Left paracentral protrusion C6-7 abutting the left C7 nerve root as it exits the spinal cord. There is minimal nerve root compression and clinical correlation is recommended. Minor disc bulge and spur C4-5 with no significant stenosis seen
My NS said she's afraid to do surgery because of all the arthritis I have in there? Does this sound right to you? I tried PT and traction and no relief. Any ideas? Thanks.
