I met with my NS today who reviewed the CT myelo results with me. Basically it showed that I have several herniated discs throughout my t-spine. T8-9 and T9-10 are the worst and are compressing my spinal cord. He believes surgery is a good option for me, being that I'm having a lot of symptoms from the disc herniations. I was under the impression that they were unable to do t-spine surgery from the back and that it had to be done via thoracotomy. However, he said what he'll do is make two small incisions in the back, in the areas of the herniated discs, and he'll relieve the pressure on my spinal cord that way. It's done as an outpatient procedure. Does this sound right, or should I be seeking a second opinion? He sounded extremely knowledgable and I really liked him. I was just surprised when he said it could be done posteriorly. Thoughts?
