Hi Spiney Family,
Had my cervical MRI done yesterday. My cervical x-rays showed some nasty pics of my spine and Dr. wanted more clarity.
To even a patient/lay-person like myself I looked at my films and it is sooooooo not good. I can clearly see 3 discs pushing on my spinal cord at C2-C5, besides the awful kyphosis and DDD.
I just had my second 2 level fusion less than a year ago, I am not ready for another surgery!!Aaaack!!
Of course I will see what my surgeon says, but things don't look that promising. So....I will most likely be hitting up you neckies (cath111, brenda...) for guidance, helpful info from your experiences, etc., since I am "just" a veteran of the lower back.
Anyway, feels better just "getting it out there" and it sinks into my brain what is coming up next. Posting helps me with accepting what is going on. OK, next is to wait for the 20th of Oct. appt. with my surgeon.
Take care all,
