I'm new to the forum. In the last few months I have been experiencing Chronic pain in my back. Turns out I have several things going on:
2) Cervical Facet Hypertrophy and Osteoarthritis- ( foramina narrowing and canal narrowing at 3 cervical levels
3) Cervical herniation C6-7
4) multi-level protrusion (thoracic) 2 benign lesions at T-9-T10-11-ligamentum flavum calcification
5(lumbar)Lumbar includes additional herniation L-5S-1 w stenosis
I am going in for an epidural at C-6-7 today. After seeing a Neuro Surgeon Friday, this is what he recommends. The radiating pain has been horrendous. He states that this herniated disc is BROAD, should surgery be done or this treatment?...anyone..?
Thank you, I'm leaving in an hour HELP.I need to make sure Im doing the right thing.
