I have 3 mm broad-based posterior protrusion at C3-C4, slightly eccentric to the left side. This effaces the left anterior aspect of the thecal sac with minimal bilateral facet arthrosis being evident.
I also have C6-C7 status post anterior interbody fusion a 3 mm broad-based posterior protrusion with spondylotic component being evident, effacing the anterior aspect of the thecal sac. Central canal remains patent. Mild bilateral neural foriminal stenosis is evident. Mild bilateral facet arthropathy is seen.
I am in severe pain with numbness and weakness in both arms. Will surgery take care of this or is surgery needed?
