I'm about to under a 3rd Cervical Surgery to remove Osteophytes(Bone Spurs) from my Neck.
There is 1 prominent spur (or mass) located way high at C-2 and is protruding what appears to be into my spinal cord.
Dr. says that one challenge may be that when removed, the cord may spring a leak which can be patched, but may also require a spinal tube implanted at the lumbar region to control the pressure.
Has anyone ever heard of this or had experience with it?
Be Well !
