The Dr said the disc is pressing on my spinal cord . My neck looks swelled . My therapist. Noticed it been swelled lately. I also have lupus sle . Anyone else with neck problems have their neck swell .
I also have ddd and spinal stenosis. I have had a 3 level cervical fusion at 4-5, 5-6, 6-7. I did experience some swelling before surgery. I never specifically asked before surgery if the herniated disks caused it but assumed it did. You have an injury with spinal cord involvement so I think swelling would be expected just as it with any other joint injury. You should ask the doctor about it if it worries. Since my surgery I have noticed no more swelling. I am now faced with the possibility of surgery. At L4-5, L5-S1.
