Re: HELP - Just got MRI results, scared!!!

So sorry to hear about what your going through. My wife is 39 years old and she didn't have an accident or anything to bring upon her problems. Severe canal stenosis at C5-6. She was a gymnast as a teenager. Neurosurgeon feels that she could ahve injured herself back then and it has just progressed with age. She is now 4 weeks post surgery. The surgery itself isn't that bad. One night in the hospital and you will have to wear a collar for 4-8 weeks.

He may be overexagerating, but I would still be careful until you see the neurosurgeon. Check his references and if you don't feel confident with him...Go to another one for a second opinion.
