Hello all! New to this site. This is what I have been diagnosed with.
~X( " At c4-5, there is mild disc/osteophyte that partially effaces the ventral CSF and focally indents the chord. Mild canal stenosis. Mild to to moderate left foraminal narrowing.
At c6-7, there is a disc protrusion that is slightly more prominent on the right, this demonstrates mild superior subligamentous spread on the right. Severe canal narrowing is present with cord compression and cord hyperintensity that likely reflects edema.
Kleppel-Feil spectrum with incomplete segmentation at c5-6 and disc protrusion at c6-7 that results in cord compression and cord signal abnormality."
Ive been told that if I dont have this surgery, its just a matter of time before I end up paralyzed and in a wheelchair. Scared! I am very scared as I still feel healthy and am pain free (apart from being able to open my middle and ring fingers on my right hand)
