at c5-c6 there is a disk bulge with a moderate broad-based right lateral disk protrusion extending to the foraminal level with likely impingement of the exiting right c6 nerve root. There is also mild to moderate mass effect to the right anterolateral subarachnoid space and spinal cord. I am also on amytriptoline, 100mg, so now what's next in the recovery because I can't live with the pain anymore, it's been 3 years and 2 concussions later...
I read your question and i understand your concern. Dont waste any further time, meet a spine surgeon and let them take out this compression by taking the disc out. Consult them and let them operate.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
