I every one new to site! Love it!
My question is this-should I or will I likely face surgery due to a 2mm bulge in C5/C6 that's just barely touching the spinal cord? The only reason I even got an mri was because my Dr. got real leery of poking around in my right shoulder again until he could rule out spine issues which of course didn't happen.Still waiting for raf to get to local spine clinic. The last two sentences in the mri report recommended decompression in the neck which I assume can mean many things according to severity of damage right? Then the last sentence said that further study was indicated at the C/7 T/1.
Honestly my pain comes more from my upperback/shoulderblades and even my chest!
I have injury history from 7 yrs old were as I fell of a high slide and somehow I crashed against my upperback and there was a vague indication of vertebral horn damage and thats as far as it went.
I could go on and on but Im just way worried that Im opening pandoras box once I start being diagnosed with this and that. With me it's always more than one thing when body parts get screwed up.
Gotta go but Im reading everything I can on this site.
Once again Im the newby to the site but not to chronic pain!!!
Suffering is inevitable but misery is optional!! Sometimes I've wondered about that??
