C3-C4 after anterior internal fixation c6-c7
Just got my MRI back as a followup to neck pains after a anterior internal fixation c6-7 3 yrs ago.
New report sates : Degenerative disk discease is seen at C3-4 w/retrolisthesis of c3 referable to c4 most likely on the basis of degen changes at this level. Broad based disk bulging at C3-C4 in association w a retrothesesis copromises the spinal canal w/flattening and possible mild compression of the spinal cord at this level. Marginal hyperostosis encroaches on the neural foramen bilaterally at this level.

c4-c5 demonstarates a small left paracentral disk protrusion and possible focal herniation w/mild thecal sac compromise and minimal flattening of the anterior lateral spinal cord paramedium.

Is this going to be another neck surgery for C3-C4. any hints what this really means? thanks, joe
