About 5 years ago, or so, I suffered a very painful compression wedge fracture >50 percent loss at t7. So over the years my pain and problems have progressed up my spine and into the cervical area. I am in constant pain, can't sit still, always having to adjust and re-adjust my body position due to the pain. My recent mri shows chronic anterior wedge deformities of c4 through c6, degenerative disc disease and loss of height of all cervical discs. Hypertrophic posterior facet changes c3/c4, significant at c/4/c5, moderate at c6/c7. Osteophyte complex with indentation into thecal sac at c4/c5, c5/c6, c7/t1. Severe neural foraminal narrowing at c4/c5, moderate at c4/c4, c6/c7. Disc protrusions at c4/c5, c5/c6,c6/c7,c7/t1. I have also developed bulging discs below the old t7 wedge fracture. And to top it off I have developed kyphosis. If anyone out there has these spine issues please advise of your outcome. I am wondering if the only fix is going under the knife. Will I just continue getting worse, ,or will this taper off and stop without further issues. I never thought at the age of 50 that I would have these spinal issues and this kind of chronic pain.
