I am new to these Forums. I have had severe and getting worse pain especially in my left elbow for about a year and a half. I am left handed. The pain gets pretty bad in my right elbow too. I also have intermittent tingling in some of my fingers.
I was told July 3rd that based on Cervical Spine MRI's I am looking at major neck surgery. My spine doctor said I'll be needing disc replacement (hardware being put in) and I don't know what else. I do know it involves c3 to c7 levels of my Cervical Spine. She mentioned narrowing of a canal (stenosis) putting pressure on nerves.
I see a surgeon Monday July 21st who specializes in this kind of surgery. He has been doing this 26 years and looks like he has excellent credentials.
Thanks for having me. You look like a great group!
