: Does anybody have any information on Myelomalacia, besides the basic information, such as cord atropy,
: softening of the spinal cord, or scarring of the spinal cord. I have Myelomalacia, secondary to trauma,
: at levels T6-T10. I would love to know where to find some in depth information on this disorder or talk to
: someone who has this disorder. Is myelomalacia progressive or fatal? I have many questions.
: Thanks for any help you might throw my way,

Karen - did you have any luck obtaining information on myelomalacia? I had ependymoma in the spinal cord (C4 - T2) in 1997. The tumor was successfully removed but I lost sensation and proprioception from my waist down. I also have problems with my arms and hands. Still much pain across the shoulders / neck. I got worse recently and yesterday was diagnosed with myelomalcacia. Any information you could provide to me would be greatly appreciated.
