    Post OPLL: Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament

    OPLL causes numbness and eventually paralysis due to ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament, which compresses the spinal cord in the cervical spinal canal. It's a rare condition and is usually found in Asians and sometimes Caucasians. I was recently diagnosed with OPLL and would love to hear from anyone who has this disease. My neurosurgeon wants to do a laminectomy with fusion of my vertebrae from C2 to C7. HELP!
