Re: cervical opll (too young for adult diapers)

I think you really need to follow up with specialists about this. The radiologist gives reasons that have nothing to do with OPLL but are sufficient to explain your symptoms. He just says the OPLL "contributes". No way I can tell if it contributes at lot or a little. It's possible that fairly minor surgeries - foraminotomies are what I have in mind - to address the foraminal stenosis would be enough for now. The one foraminotomy I had turned out to be an outpatient procedure, to give you some idea.

I don't want to tell you that the OPLL isn't important, though. I just don't know. If it is important, my knowledge of it is so small that you're already way ahead of me.
