Cyndi Here I have been a member for almost a year now. I had c-4-7 fused posteriorly with a laminectomy and have worn my collar since august.. In the last month I have gotten down to only wearing it when I travel. I have been bothered with my knees for months now and my Rooster comb shots are not really helping my left knee is pretty much shot. It looks like the doctor feel Knee replacement will be in order in the very near future (OH JOY) while in the meantime I am trying so hard to lose weight he says it will help but wont take away the OA. Sooo I have been noticing the last 5-6 weeks when walking that My bad knee foot always points outward and my other foot has Foot Drop( slap slap accross the floor expecially is I wear shoes other than sneakers, (makes it louder, ) I had noticed it but just sort of figured I was weird for which I am... @ weeks ago my husband said that he could hear me coming accross the store. I also had a brisk knee reflex. so they ordered MRI of my Lumbar, then they want Thoracis and a new one of my neck... I hate those machines witha passion, Does any of this make sence? also when walking (which hurts to much lately) my foot and toes will go numb..
Just wanted to through this out to ya.. The suregeon wanted this study done right away. Mri Saturday night, office visit on Wednesday
