  • Does this mean artificial disc of some sort brtyler? Are you a "neckkie" or a back person? What is your diagnosis? Tell me a bit more so that I can give some feedback, if any. Needless to say, I hope all goes well.
  • IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABSOLUTELY ASK TO SEE HIM AGAIN!!! My docs staff are the worst in the world about getting messages to him and stuff and they cancelled my appointment the other day knowing I had questions so I got tired of it and exploded on them and I got to see the doc. DO NOT LET THEM CUT ON YOU UNLESS ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED! You are the one getting cut on after all. it is non reversible, get your questions answered and the doctor IS obligated to talk to you or find you another doctor.
  • I am going to have a fusion at C5C6 and the new NS told me he would use a plastic plug. I wonder if that is what he is talking about? He said they put the plug there instead of bone and fills it it with bone marrow that will thus start the fusion process. Hopefully someone can fill us in on this. I was in such a state of shock that I couldn't even come up with any decent questions.
    Good luck to you, Bethy
  • HELLO MY DEAR
    ANY NEWS ABOUT YOUR FUSION AS IT SEEMS THAT I WILL DO THE SAME FUSION SOON IN HE SAME AREA AS YOU.
    THANKS =((
