Multi Level Cervical Disk Replacement

I was diagnosed with disk degeneration disease from C3-C7 at South Eastern Spine located in Charleston, South Carolina.  I has pain in numbness mainly in my right hand and fingers.  I went and got second and third opinions and one doctor's opinion was that the pain was being caused at the C4-C5 level and another suggested that it was coming from C5-C6? It was a long and hard decision, but I decided to go with the Cervical Fusion at the C5-C6 levels that was recommended by the doctor at South Eastern Spine.  I had the Cervical in May of 2007 and everything seem

Female Army Combat Veteran with severe pain

I am NOT a doctor, or a X-Ray tech, just someone that had back and hip problems with many MRI's.   Ok, the trace disc protrusion means that your discs are bulging, meaning it's exactly that bulging out and while it's not great it's not horrible either.  It sounds like you probably have either nerves being pressed and that could be a slight pinch, and that's you feel it if you move a certain way, or its pressing on a branch nerve and causing more pain and constant.  My mom blew her back out and and a couple of her discs herniated, they where all the way out.  She couldn't walk, she couldn't crawl, my dad had to carry her in the bathroom, into the doctors office.  She had the back surgery, was pretty rough on her, after months of doing the physical therapy she still had a lot of pain.  Her orthopedic surgeon told her, she would probably always have that pain, that the surgery was just to move the disc off the nerve and it was considered a complete success.   So I learned a very valuable lesson, you better make sure you ask the right questions when things like that happen.  I had my own problems with my back and refused to operate.  I rather deal without anyone cutting on my back!  So far, I have avoided it, and have used chiropractic care, acupuncture, nerve blocks, RF-A's, which for me worked the best.  It's time for me to do my S1-S3 RF-A which lasts for me 12 to 15 months, and am gonna have to do L3-L6.  Did the nerve block testing, waiting for insurance to approve the procedure.  Suppose to do it the 3/7 but insurance has approved so I told them we will wait until they approve it.  I can live with it, it's bearable.   I hope that will easy your mind, there are other things to do without surgery now.  I did a traction thing for it was a few months and my bulging discs popped back in place!  Good Luck and I wish the Best of Luck for you!  Thank You for serving and putting your life on the line.

MRI results on Thoracic and cervical area

This is your summary: "Degenerative disk disease with small herniations at the C6-C7 and C7-C8 levels." You have degenerative disk disease. The disease is causing a stenosis which means a narrowing of the spinal canal. Because the herniations are small more than likely your PCP will limit your lifting and prescribe PT with some pain meds and muscle relaxers. Oh...i see you are going to a chiro...i would recommend seeing a PCP.

Severe Neck Problems post fusions

Hi, kikko.  I don't have any advice for you, but you do have my deepest sympathies.  I can't begin to imagine how scared you must be with this pending surgery, nor can I truthfully say I feel your pain, because it is probably so much worse than I could ever imagine.  I suffer from chronic pain in my lower back from stenosis and degenerative disk disease as well as other joint problems, but my pain is nothing compared to yours.  I hope everything works out for you.  I truly do.  I will pray for you to get well soon.  Warmly, Vicki T

MRI results please help!

  Hi...well from what I am understanding u have DDD-degenerative disk disease..which is not a disease but more just a name of a natural aging process, but those with chiari tend to have the onset a tad earlier than most. U have a bulging disk as well in the thoracic spine....and I think I saw it in the lumbar as well....   As for the chiari not being mentioned, it may have been in the RX for the radiologist to look for nething in addition to the, the chiari is a this the same facility that did that study?     "selma"
