I have had previous anterior cervical fusion at c5-c6 with anterior plate and screws in good position. There is prominent ventral impression on the thecal sac centrally and to the left of c6-c7 related to a combination of spur and disc. Predominant pathology is osseous. There is a spinal stenosis with canal measuring 9.8 mm at c6-c7. The canal also shows narrowing at c4-c5 secondary to spurring. The canal measures 9.8 mm at this level. There is a narrowing of the canal to the left at c3-c4 secondary to large spur with canal measuring 9.5 mm. Minimal cord flattening on the left at c4-c5. No foraminal stenosis.
Can someone please shed some light on this? Seems to me I am gonna need to have surgery to remove some bone spurs soon. Does this sound like I am right?
Lol.. What are you trying to say, I pretty much screwed then? Sorry just a bit of humor there.. I am disabled due to my neck and back problems, and get disability for them. So I guess it's a bit of a safety net if you will.. I have many disc and spur issues. I think the correct medical term for what I suffer from is Spinal Stenosis Myelopathy. I have a Dr. and have a follow up coming next week. I was just being impatient...
