Well, since receiving your last response I have followed up with a spine surgeon and there were a couple options on the table. I have an exaggerated kyphosis and a herniated disc at T6/T7 as well as anterior wedging of T7, so that being the case one of the options presented is to correct the kyphosis posteriorly thereby letting the cord drape away from the herniation hopefully reducing the indentation on the cord, the other two options being percutaneous discectomy, percutaneous screw fixation, or direct lateral kyphosis correction and interbody fusion. With an increase in neuro symptoms including hyperreflexic lower extremities, weakness/heaviness in both lower legs and sensory changes would you suggest considering any of this at this time? Or do you have any other potential suggestions given the scenario? Thanks in advance
