38 years old, recently got my blue belt at BJJ. Got caught in a guillotine, the guy fell backwards and my head hit into the mat whilst my chin was tucked in trying to defend the choke. My report reads: “At C5/C6 severe compression of the spinal cord with the suspicion of incipient compressive myelopathy and probable left C6 nerve root compression, mainly due to a large left dominant disc protrusion; additional small left dominant C5/C6 osteophytes and uncovertrbral joint hypertrophy is noted. No nerve root or spinal cord compression at the other levels. Multiple small, noncompressive thoracic disc protrusions. It has been communicated that the findings might be clinically urgent and that the referring clinician should receive this report promptly.” I think they are going to remove the disc and fuse the spine. Is there any way back to BJJ from this, please give me some hope.
