Thread: Compressed Cord

    Compressed Cord

    I've been injured nearly 6 yrs now at c7. Could it be possible my cord could be slightly compressed and would it be worth my while to have an MRI to determine if it is? If it is compressed what can be done to decompress it or will they even do anything? What possible return can be achieved after decompressing? Thanks.

    i had decompression 5 hrs. after i got hurt. then they did a second one the next day to clean out fragmented bone and all that and put a plate on the front too. right after the surgery when i woke up i had tingling in my toes and hands. i can feel my legs and i can move my hands decent enough. i'd definitely get it checked out if i were you, couldn't hurt, right?
