    Stenosis and Syringomelia

    I have had cervical stenosis with myelomalacia. MRI report says six syrinx (surgeon could only find 4) and they are all located at the level (C56) of where the stenosis is worst. They are very small( 4mm or less, except one). Over last two months things have gotten really worsened for me. I m preparing for ACDF surgery which does not touch the syrinx but open the spinal canal.

    I am wondering the prognosis for someone in my case. Is ACDF to open the canal the best treatment. Are the spine surgeons (like folks who do the ACDF surgery) experts in syringomelia? According to them the surgery can stop myelomalacia. Is it the same after the syrinx has formed? OR its worse? I have numbness and tingling in my lower body. It used to be in the legs. Then in the thigh. Then button. Now its on my stomach and lower back. It feels like I am getting numb.
