    Post astrocytoma and syrinx of the spine

    I recently had an MRI and the diagnosis is that I have a syrinx for c5-6 level to around t7 and at T7 there is a 2.3 x 1 cm lesion which the radiologist thinks is a astrocytoma. I go to the neurologist tomorrow and I have to admit I'm afraid. Can anyone tell me their experiences with this and what to be prepared for.

    Two sisters, who are friends of ours, have had this condition in the past year. They had pain in the shoulders, leg pain, unsteady balance. They both have had surgery and are doing good. One surgery was done in Tampa and in one in Wisconsin, four months apart.

    Good luck!
