Spinal cord malacia

Posted by kenthib @kenthib, Nov 22, 2019

After emergency surgery for an epidural abscess I have spinal cord malacia at C5-C6 to C6-C7. I have found information on the surgical procedure but nothing on the post-op prognosis. I wonder how this will affect my future. Does anyone have experience with this condition?

Hello @kenthib. Would you care to share a bit more about your malacia, does this mean your spinal cord has 'softened'? What procedure are you facing as a result of you malacia? Connect members may have a better idea of what post-op prognosis and experiences are like of they understand the procedure you are facing?
