Hello all, I have been having the pain in the left shoulder blade and down the arm along with the tingling and numbness in the left hand. I went and had an mri done and have severe compression at 5-6 and moderate stenosis in 6-7.
I first went to a neursurgeon that sent me to PT with relieve from my symptons and he said come and see me again in 6 months. I found another neurosurgeon who reviewed my mri and seen me in one day. I now have my ACDF scheduled for July 7, 2011.
I am a little nervous as I have never had any kind of surgery but cannot wait for the pain and such to be gone.
This forum is very informative and I am glad I found y'all.
