Thorasic bone spur

Any one here diagnosed with bone spur of thorasic. Mylogram/ CT showed bone spur at T6T7. Could be why I cannot seem to heal no matter the effort on my part. But I had a herniation there on MRI. Is someone not seeing something correct? Bone spur the one thing in thorasic I really don't know about. Appriciate any feedback. Dr. also told me pathology of thorasic should not change when sitting ( herniation or buldge getting bigger) I just cannot fathom how it cannot judging by the pain levels. I do know the information correlates with what doc says ,but boy my pain levels increase sitting.

Another thing in his office there were brochures for stryker products for spine, diagrams and symptoms of cervical and lumbar ,but not one thing about anything thorasic. This may be ADR products ,but it is still on par with every brochure I have ever read in Dr. office.

Herniated T6-7, multiple herniations in cervical, tears in T5-T8. Stenois at levels and smorls nodes from thoracic thru lumbar

Several years after my

Several years after my injury an MRI showed that I had also developed bone spurs and arthritis. I'm not sure but I think these both result from bone injuries. Painful, yes I am sure of that.

I can't sit either.

Bone spur

I have a bone spur at T8-9 i had mid back pain for almost 2 years till they xrayed my neck and discovered 2 ruptured herniated discs at c5-6 and C6-7 had a fusion done June 20, 08 and all my back pain is gone, bone spur will act up only if i do a lot of work involving my back, but other than that it doesnt bug me anymore. have them xray your entire spine, maybe missing something.

Bone spur pain

I have a bone spur that looks like a birds beak pointing inwards on what I think is my t4,t5 when I move they are now hitting something that is feels like I am being stabbed. The pain reaches the 10 mark very fast. Then after the pain I get muscle spasms. It feels sometimes as if a rib is out of place. When I lay on my side I can feel them. Is there any surgery that can remove an inward bone spur that may remove the pain? I feel like I am getting the run around it is as if they don't believe me. My lower back I had a radio frequency burn to remove lower back pain. It lasted about a year and now it is back also. I am 44 years old. The mid back was caused from a fall of about 10 feet on concrete. I have also been in 3 car accidents. Never driving on any of them, for a short time after 1 I was paralyzed from the neck down until swelling went away. I hope there is something out there that maybe can give me advice. Or at least know there is something to look at.
Thank you.

Bone Spur in my neck also

Hi
I've also got a bone spur that is shaped like a beak trying to fuse into my spine below my two surgeries of my neck and the pain is awful. My surgeon said no surgery as it will interfere with the fusions of my neck but I do know they can shave them a bit if they are giving you a lot of pain. Another opinion of MRI sounds like the thing for you. Hope it gets better.

2 x Lumber surgeries + syn cage and infection after the last surgery.
2 x Neck Fusions
Hysterectomy
Gall Bladder removal
2 prolapses in thoracic and one above lumber fusion and bone spur

Paralysis should not be your

Paralysis should not be your first concern regarding treatment. There are many other things like permanent nerve damage, infection, and future complications that need to be taken into account.

The decision to have surgery is one that you make with your doctor after carefully considering all the options and information available. Sometimes a simple surgery will cure a lifetime of pain.

Please forgive me for preaching but I lost a cousin to pain med addiction because he was afraid to have surgery that was recommended.

Well, if I knew the surgery

Well, if I knew the surgery had a high success rate I would be a lot more inclined to do it. The doc told me it make cause worse pain than i already have. But my general doc told me to wait a couple years for technology, then push for it. So I am simply putting the inevitable off. Im so young, its gonna have to be done, probably in the next 5 yrs at least. Sorry about your cousin.

Thoracic is hard

Because of the location of the thoracic portion of the spine surgery is very difficult. Most doctors will not work on this area. I would suggest teaching hospitals in major cities. Most have a spine center.

I would start looking now. Make a few appointments so you can meet the doctors and do some background checks.
