I sure do have empathy for you. I have the same fusion C3-7. I am frightened just like you are. I had good results with my last fusion, but now I do have issues below the surgical site. I have no idea what will happen either.
As far as reading the MRI results, noone is professional here, but many are educated on the language those MRI's use. I look up each individual word. I never got a straight answer from my first neuro surgeon, and did not get good results first time around. For my own sanity, I ask here for help on reading MRI. Leesa is great, and has a great understanding of the structure of the spine. I will be having another MRI just as you are in the near future. Take care and keep in touch. ginnie
