I am sitting here so bing my heart out writing this.
Last year, whilst 19 weeks pregnant, I was hit by a 4x4 who failed to stop at a stop sign. I wasn't in a car.
My baby is absolutely fine I crossed my arms over my bump upon impact ( he just turned 1) but a month later at 23 weeks, I ended up in ICU with a massive pulmonary embolism. We are both lucky to be here.
Ever since the accident, I've had bad neck pain. Last week, the insurance company finally approved for me to have an MRI on my neck.
My GP is on vacation until next Friday and today, I went to my Physio, who gave me my MRI results and told me to go and see my doctor.
Because of everything that happened last year - that I nearly died twice, I am TERRIFIED of something else going wrong.
This is my MRI results, I M hoping someone may perhaps be able to help me understand.
My Physio, basically said the osteophytes are narrowing my spinal cord? Which makes me think that I am going to end up in a wheelchair... Please help.
There is reduction of disc space at C5/C6 and broad posterior disc osteophyte at C6 nudges the anterior cord with moderate central canal stenosis but no focal cord signal or syrinx.
Neurocentral joint osteophytes are present causing moderate right and low grade left neural foraminal stenosis.
No comprehensive disco patchy, central canal or neural foraminal stenosis at other levels. No paraspinal soft tissue abnormality is seen.
Disc osteophyte and neurocentral joint osteophytes at c5/6 with moderate right foraminal stenosis likely contacting the right C6 nerve root.
