When I first read my own MRI report, it may as well have been written in Greek. After doing some internet research, I see there is a difference between "foraminal" stenosis and central canal stenosis. My MRI shows severe foraminal stenosis and mild central canal stenosis, both at C3-4 and C5-6. I will be seeing a NS in a few weeks. Because of personal reasons, I desperately want to know what treatment to expect, conservative or surgical. If it's surgical, I need to be making some plans. I understand the forum rules prevent anyone from giving medical advice. I just wonder if anyone has had a similar diagnosis/experience that they would be willing to share.
