Hi , I am so glad I finally found something about this OPLL. I was also told I have OPLL (c3-c6). I dont have any pains, found it by mistake while swimming... the only thing I felt was electrical shocks all over my body that went away after 5 days. Went to check it and doc suggested CT and then MRI that showed the OPLL, bone spurs and most important, severe pressure of the cervical cord. I live in Amsterdam and I am flying next week to Denver (where my brother lives) to have the surgery: C4, C5 corpectomy plus cage and metal plate. I would love to hear about the post op recovery. I am so scared! I will be stayiny in Denver till I will be able to get on a plane and go back to Europe.. How long do you think that might take? The only symptoms that I have is hyperreflexia in arms and legs (this means strong reaction to reflex check) I didnt know I had it before the clinical check, but doc told me it is a sign that the cord is being compressed - and tinglings in my back plus little pains at the end of my fingers that come and go away. I am 50 years old and didnt have any spine problems before..
Thanks a lot for any sharing of your post op recovery.
