I'm 27 yr old and was diagnosed w/KFS in january.

I had pain in left side of neck, hand, forearm, shoulder.,
Sometimes in chest area.

I have fusion of C2/C3 and C5/C6/C7

My MRI showed narrowing of spinal canal
this tuesday, when i woke up i had numbness in my both hip and right hand( along the side of last two fingers),face, back, near abdomen...

My doctor is going to schedule an ppt. w.neurosurgeon in ATL.


WHAT DO U GUYS/GALS w/ KFS DO FOR LIVING?

I am about to finish first year of medical school ( 2 weeks left).
I am wondering whether I should continue my studies or not. Hope that neurosurgeon can answer that question.
