Re: Severe spinal cord compression at C2-3 with disc extrusion. Anyone?
i am sorry to read about what you are going through, but know this , you are not alone, i was first fused from c-2 to c-4 and now c-2 to c-6 from 2 separate surgeries, range of motion has its limits and your nerves will let you know where, it is very important to listen to your body, as far as your limitations, i now have C-1 and C-7 bulging, these are the only two pivot points my neck has left, i have been using my upper body to turn and look at things, but i guess not enough, my neuro said," this will probably not get rid of your pain, however any kind of cord compression can cause severe and permanent nerve and spinal cord damage, it must be fused" the pain is unbearable , i know, a pain management DR, is going to be a part of your life, i wish you the best possible care, and a full recovery,with a painfree life, keep in touch, 575needles
