I am waiting for my appointment with a Neurosurgeon. I had an MRI last week. I know I am going to need surgery. I am just curious if others had similar conditions. What type of surgery did you have ? How long was recovery period. I am experiencing Pain !! shoulder, shoulder balde, arm and muscle spasms. Foot arm and hand numbness all on left side. Intense pain after a period trying to do anything physical. I am 47 female and trying to continue working until surgery .Hoping to put surgery off for a little while.
c4-c5 ostephyte narrowing ventral and left ventral aspect of canal . Encroaches and mildly touches and deforms the cord. Narrowing the left aspect of the canal/left nueral foramen
c5-6 Broad disc osteophyte producing moderate to severe spinal stenosis with encroachment to the ventral aspect of the cord and effacement of the CSF (? spinal Fluid) around the level of the cord. Does this mean cord compression ? This also narrows the entrance into the neural foramina and the is moderate narrowing of the left foremen and mild narrowing of the right formen.
c6-7 the same as C4-5
