Hi Everyone..

Im a 40 year old female who is under the card of Dr Matthew Scott-Young, one of the best back/neck specialists getting around.

Last year I had a fusion at L5-S1 and total disc replacement at L4/5 and just found out that I now need further surgery at C4/5 and C5/6 and C6/7..Can anyone help with the meaning of "Posterior Osteophyte" and "Invertebral Foramina Bilaterlly" as these are mentioned on my CT report..AS you can imagine the pain is unbearable

Thanks all
