After my one year anniversary of a ACDF C5-6, it is officially a failure. It fused thankfully, but I am no better off than I was a year ago. My surgeon is frustrated and so am I! At my request, he is referring me to a new neurologist.
What should I ask this doctor? I plan to take my history and latest MRI. The pain, weakness, & numbnesss up and down my right hand, arm, shoulder and neck are still there. In fact, I think it is worse than before surgery - it's been gradually worsening over the last year. I plan to take my husband if for no other reason, I'll have proof (a witness) that I'm not faking it for meds like one doctor accused me of last year. Don't you just hate this merry-go-around ride? It never stops!
Thanks in advance,
