    Post C5-6 DISC NARROWING AFTER SURGERY AND THECAL SAC IMPINGEMENT

    I'M 47, FEMALE AND HAD SURGERY 2 YRS AGO FOR A CRUSHED DISC C5-6 AND HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS UNTIL NOW. I'VE HAD NEUROTIN AND BACOFEN WHICH MAKE ME BRAIN DEAD, HAVE JUST STARTED CORTISONE SHOTS, HAD A MYELOGRAM AND EMG. THE RESULTS SHOW THAT I DEGENERATIVE CHANGES WITH DISC SPACE NARROWING AT THE C5/6 LEVEL WITH SLIGHT PROMINENCE OF THE POSTERIOR INFERIOR VERTEBRAL BODY OF C5 THAT APPEARS MINIMALLY IMPINGED UPON THE THECAL SAC BUT DOES NOT APPEAR TO TOUCH THE SPINAL CORD. C5/6 COMES CLOSE TO THE BONY STRUCTURES BUT WITH NO UPON THE CORD OR NERVE ROOTS BEING SEEN, BUT I STILL HAVE PAIN IN MY NECK, SHOULDERS AND SHOULDER BLADES IN THE BACK.

    Hi Blondiemad,

    Welcome to the board. I'm sorry you are having such a difficult time. I haven't had surgery at this point, so I can't offer much info, but am sure others will reply to your issues. Just wanted to let you know I care.

    Jeanine
