Nobody can conventionally remove a Th1-Th2 vertebral disc through a "back incision".
Such a compression at this level do not answer for the symptoms you are experiencing.
hi Chris thanks for being brave and putting yourself out there
i have been seeing a Neorologist for a few months and he is at present visiting with other specilists to ascertain the possibility of operating on my spine I also have discs pressing
I have no idea at the present waht they may come up with thoughI will be seeing my neorologist this Wednesday in my area
on my spinal chord
I experience stiffness numbness and mild painfulness
My injuries are aunrelocated clavicle that never healed properly that is mainly causing this also I have cerebellar attaxia and my spine is curved also
Good luck with your surgery keep positive and be strong
Look after yourself and take care
I have cervical, lumbar,Thorascic Herniation's. My t section I have been told is severe and they are touching the spinal cord on the side and front of it.I go see a surgeon in Nash,Tenn.He told me the surgery is very dangerous and mri's 2xyr.I am scared he told me I was showing symptoms of needing the surgery but they go through the chest and move my heart and lungs.My question is Can I be paralyzed if I don't have it.My pain is great but I also have Lupus,Sorjerns Symdrome,Fibromyalgia and Artherhitis could be RA.Also could they possibly ever move away from th s cord.Thanks!
to give you a clear answer I should see in a way you MRI, because you are a victime of other family of diseases like you mentioned; systemic disease, I have more doubt about your thoracic disc.. anyways no need to worry because the surgery is only done laterally through a small back incision... the heart will be intact the lung could be gently retracted about half or one centimeter...
