I've had a fusion done at L4-5 recently due to a reherniated degenerative disc 6 weeks ago and recovery is going well.
Today, I collected a copy of the mri scan that was done in December. The scan was a full, head to sacrum one. When I viewed it at home, I got a bit of a shock:
It appears that I also have a spondylolisthesis at C6-7. By the looks of it, grade 1, and the vertebrae is misshapen. Strangely, I don't have any symptoms, apart from occasional pins and needles in my left forearm and hand. Now, I don't want to interfere with it as it isn't causing any issues at the moment. However, is it something that can easily go wrong?
