First, thank you in advance for reading....
I'm new to the site and forum and quite nervous about what's going on. I have had pretty serious neck pain for a while and it recently lead me to a myleogram (sp?) and i'm not really understanding the results and could really use some help.
C2/3: moderate right paracentral herniation mildly compromising the cord, the foramina are patent, the facets are grossly intact.
C3/4: small midline herniation without cord compromise, patent foramina, grossly in tact facets.
C4/5: normal alignment and disc, patent canal and foramina
C5/6: mild disc bulge with small osteophyte, patent canal and foramina
C6/7: mild diffuse bulge, patent canal and foramina
C7/T1: patent canal and foramina
Dr. has recommended surgery and the pain is so intense sometimes that it's giving me massive migraines and numbness. Any info will be so appreciated.
