Good morning....new here and have been reading stories about cervice disc replacment with cages....I am having that done this Fri...the 30th.....I had a brain MRI done to rule out MS and my doctor...not the surgeon....mentioned that the MRI (brain) shows no MS but does state this about my sinus in the
"IMPRESSION" "Small left ethmoid and maxillary sinus fluid. Small bilateral mastoid fluid...." can anyone tell me what that means....and should I have the surgery or not.....pre op at the hospital said they will cancel surgery if I have a sinus infection....my doctor took a swab in the nose but results may not get back intime before surgery....should I be concerned....
Thanks Pam
