After a year of symptoms like trouble walking, I was finally given an MRI which showed damage to my cervical spinal cord. My spinal cord was just hanging in my neck being bumped by my vertebrae. You could see white matter (the inner spinal chord) on the MRI. I could barely walk when I had surgery on Aug 3rd. After three months, I can walk again but my muscles feel tight all the time. I get fatigued after just walking. My toes feel like mush. My balance is bad. I used to be quite active playing tennis, hiking, biking and skiing. I wonder how much I will recover from this. I am going to PT twice a week. My surgeon is not very hopeful. Has anyone had similar experiences?
