  10. Hello Sir, Prof. Mohammed
    I am a 35 yrs, a Medical Board Resident, from Yemen ..
    I have had a multiple cervical discs prolapse.. mostly C5-6 and C6-7..
    I also have had a history of median Sternotomy at age of 9yrs (26 years ago) for ASD 2nd type age 10 heavy object (a door) had fallen on my head and whole body while I was writing homework.. I am performing will since that time except for slight neck pain that I deal with by wrong methods.. like tilting neck with force..
    Later on, a deformity start to occur in my sternum and more projection at middle part 3rd & 4th sternocostal junction.. with depressed sternum beyond that area..
    I have an MRI .. and adviced to undergo a surgery..

    I am asking if there is relation between sternal deformity and cervical disc prolapse since I experience pain releive when I put a bellow under my sternum at lying prone..
