I understand.Then I shall wait and see the outcome of physical therapy first.Just FYI I already have gait disturbance. My left leg locks especially when I try to walk faster than usual. So I end up walking like a robot 😀😀😀.
Hi Dr. Corenman. Today I had my 6 month follow-up providing a new MRI and CT Scan to my Neurosurgeon as per his instructions. He concluded that the cervical cage and screws are in the right place and things are moving to the right direction. So far so good. However he noticed some stenosis on C4/5 without signs of Myelopathy and he suggested that we perform laminectomy to avoid any future myelopathies by creating more space for the spinal cord.
I would like to have your opinion on that matter. I have a screenshot of the mri but I do not know how to attach it here.
You do have significant stenosis above the decompression and fusion and still have residual stenosis at your surgical level. I agree with your surgeon that a laminectomy should be considered at your C4-5 level and then extend the laminectomy to the C5-6 level.
