I got a new mri yesterday, my mri is VERY interesting..and my new dr called me right away after getting the report, the report says I have a SCREW pressing on my spinal cord at the side of C3-4disc level and suggests and neurosurgical consult asap...my neurosurgeon who did the surgery told me I had irreversible cord compression and released my and basically told me to live with it.. so I went for a 2nd opinion and am finding this out? seems very interesting. also very scary to find out its a screw that is causing my bouts of temporary paralysis and problems evidently. I also have a herniated disc at C3-4 and C6-7.
So surgery will not be able to be avoided for me as hoped, due to the screw being where it is, i'm just hoping it has not done any permanent damage,this has been a roller coaster ride for me, and its starting all over again.
