Been reading online and this board seems most educated. ..want to get better understanding of tests,my next ortho appt is 3 weeks away still. I first went to ortho because I have limited use of my left arm,neck is also limited, neck spasm.went for the shots in my neck then several epidural shots, physical therapy, meds... then with all the xrays n mri's they found I was born with extra vertebrae and it was the cause of my leg and back pain, I have just been living with it. DDD lotttts of arthritis and one disc was mangled, he said surprised I walked into the office...anyhooo, that put all the neck/arm issues on back burner. Now its been almost 6 months after multilevel fusion and a year since I first started going, my neck has gotten bad again. Perhaps because im not taking pain meds lol. Anyhoo..prior the back i had the emg test and it showed bad nerve damage and he wanted to run some more mri and xrays and check the lumbar fusion...so the tests say... degenerative postsurgical change with healing, laminetomy defect at L5... so to me that sounds good....the cervical mri says, .... Impression. . Multilevel DDD w/spondylosis... c2 c3, central disc protrusion and left facet hypertrophy. ..c3 c4, c4 c5, left facet hypertrophy. ...c5-6 normal limits..... c6 c7 spondylotic disc bulge............. so, my questions are... will I ever get use of my left arm again? It feels as its starting in right arm, could I lose range of motion in both? Since its been a year, is it fixable?
