Re: MRI thoracic/cervical region HELP

I'm not sure what to make of the whole thing.

Last year my neurosurgeon was concerned about the myelomalacia and the focal cord atrophy in the cervical spine. While it may not have worsened it has created symptoms such as weakness in the arms etc.

He is afraid to touch me surgcially because first of all the surgeries that I have already been thru plus I have other issues such as I am diabetic and do I have kidney disease so surgery is more risky. To also get to the area for surgery in the cervical spine would require going thru the sternum to get to the area affected for surgery. A nightmare of a surgery as per my neurosurgeon.

I dont think there were issues with bone spurs in prior studies and the loss of disc space at C6-7 was not present in last years films or report.


Again I dont know what to make of it and what to expect when I see the doctor.
