I am relatively new to spine-health, I have posted on Epidural Lipomatosis (Lumbar) and also Thoracic Pain going into rib-cage..due to stenosis, a small tumor, and bulging disks. Surgery obviously is not an answer,have tried injections,chiropractor,this seems to have occurred after having cervical spine discectomy 2 level w/fusion. The cervical spine surgery was very successful and didn't cause me any problems (to my knowledge)fused well, etc. though having some degeneration above the surgery.I did have a really bad fall..backwards into the bath-tub,just got off balanced after shower,outside the tub,hit my neck hard on the ceramic tile soap holder! Saw stars!,but wasn't knocked out, had a new MRI and it didn't seem to appear as any problem. Though,it was after this that the thoracic problems started, now I am wondering....any similar cases out there would love to know the answers on allieviating the chronic,constant pain. Thanks,Bonnieb
