Re: mri results - need help reading them
this is anitavst agian. i forgot to mention i had c3 - 7 laminectomy and straightening of the cervical cord is jan 2005 - before the surgery i was paralized on the rhs and my lhs was going too. i was in hospital for 3 weeks nad my neurosrugeon said i would not survive and if i did i would be in a wheelshair - too much damage to my nerves was already done.
they shaved all my hair and went in through the back.
i DID survive, and took me a year to walk straight again (4 months off work to get my arms to work again - i work a desk job).
now i am having "upper" problems. migraines glaore, neck and shoulder chronic pain and my face and ears go numb, cant sit for too long - arm weakness on both sides and nerve pain and numbness all over. doc says i need ot have suregery agian - was not expecting it for anouther 10 years but need another one in five since my last one. this time it is on 3 levels - titanium plate and my hemangioma will need to be removed. he is also checkeing my swalling since i anm having torubl breathing and swamlloing food, lots of chest pains. he is saying success rate for this surgery is better than the last one ut i don understand why i am so scared. i have 2 little kids and i dont want them to go thorugh this agian - 7 and 4.
please help someone to understand why i ma so wroried this time aorund. i am reworking our trust, will and gursdianship for the kids just in case.
