Saw my NS and my tentative ACDF C-6/7 surgery to decompress nerve roots, remove multiple osteophytes set for next week is now a "no scrub".
NS believes I have cord compression co-existing with the cervical nerve roots compression C-6/7/8
Neuro symptoms being so severe on left arm and hand, plus body flinches and left outer leg and front of feet toes, is now pointing to spinal cord becoming more involved now.
Game plan: #1 is a myelogram for more definite info on spinal cord, updated MRI-CT scan (last one Nov.).
Not what I was wanting to hear, but was suspecting...with symptoms I've been having.
Hope to get myelogram, MRI-CT scans and possible emg/ncs tests done close to home, so heading back to that direction now.
Game plan changing, disappointed, but not surprised for what I have been physically experiencing....but still tough to know what may be ahead.
