I am ten months post. C3-7. My second after a failed surgery on C6-7. I also had spondiolosis where my vertrebre, were rolling on top of each other. I think your worst problem seems to be at C6-7, and it includes a disk buldge. Other vertrebre seem to have measures of difficulity. Get all the tests you can, and seek a second opinion if you can. I have no real negative things to tell you other than my surgery though painful, did help. I had my first 6 years ago, I continued to degenerate until I was in a sad sad shape. Then they did a big surgery, 6 years later when I was much much worse. If I had been told, I was going to degenerate on all the rest of my cervical spine, I would have asked my neuro, why he didn't correct it all to begin with. If your pain is really bad with the NP you mention, if Possible, i hope your surgeon and neuro can correct it. This sounds like a fixable thing. Have you talked to your neuro about all options yet? Please try to be calm, gosh I know how hard that is too. I believe there can be a solution with the right neuro. This took me several doctors to find my answer.. I truely wish you all the best. Others will be along that may address the individual aspects of your MRI results. Read all you can and look up words that your don't know.
