Hi Spiney Friends,
I've been so busy this week I forgot to post how my Dr. appointment went. We already knew from the x-rays that it is a total mess in there. The MRI shows that I have some time before nerve issues becom a big problem. Since I don't
have much nerve symptoms, some R arm tinglies, as long as I can live with the pain, we can wait a bit.
My c1 and c2 are deformed and looks like fused together with some spondy. He's going to leave that area alone, said its a tough spot w/ lots of blood. c4-6 have the most herniations and he would fuse that and try to straighten out. That w/ the severe kyphosis will have my c-spine looking like an 'S', which is great, 'cause I like to be a bit different! LOL.
I have a 2nd opinion appt. in 2 weeks, we'll see how it goes.
Have a good day spineys,
