So...I had to get my medical records from my old PCP to give to my new PCP. I happened to come across my MRI report. The doctor from the spine center told me that I have several bulging discs and two herniated discs. However, the MRI says I also have mild cervical stenosis and another herniated disc (T4/5), along with a couple more bulging discs in that area.
I'm so angry that the doctor would not tell me this. I have been telling the doctors for months about my leg weakness and pain along with all the neck issues. I've read a lot of info on cervical stenosis. It seems that leg weakness is a symptom.
We are now at the point that we are planning surgery for my neck. However...How would this affect the stenosis? If the stenosis is causing the leg pain and weakness...along with the neck issues...How would fusion or disc replacement be of any help??
I need some opinions please. I'm at my wits end...
