  • I as well have spacers. On 2-12-08 I had a 3 level ACDF,Cord decompression,partial corpectomy. I had severe stenosis. I am fusing well and don;t have hardly any pain however,My left calf has lost feelig and my left foot,from the heel to the toe on the side is totally numb. I am going tomorrow for more tests.

    Good Luck to you!
  • I have my 6 month check up today after a 3 level ACDF.I believe I am fusing fine. The trouble is I want another neurosurgeon. I feel the one that did this was good but there were some issues that arose,potentially litigation.
    I have an appt.w/another neuro at the end of the month but I wonder if will agree to "follow" me with my progress since he didn't do the proceedue. Comments please?
    Thanks
