I have been looking and looking for information on the type of surgery I'd need and find nothing
As you can see in my profile pic, my L2 vertebrae is basically gone. I have bone fragments impinging on the thecal sac. My understanding is that he'd have to go in through an anterior incision to cut out that fragment, build up something and fuse the T1 to the T3.
When I look up regular fusions, having bones there is pretty much required, and I'm not sure how needing to get cutting tools in there changes the incision. Also, how does the fact that it's way up there at T1 change the surgery?
Just wishing there was someone with similar surgery to talk to.
Here are some other MRI scans- anyone else out there that looks like me?
