Someone is ignorant! Help me figure it out who it is please:
This week I saw a new personal trainer who is supposed to be wonderful with my doctor's blessing since I'm one year post op (ACDF C5-6). The PT and I looked at my MRI and much to our surprise, the screws in my neck that hold the fusion are shown actually going into my spinal cord! He pointed it out and I started crying.
I have had no pain relief from surgery, and I still have symptoms down my right arm that my surgeon just can't explain.
Could the MRI be misleading? Would the screws in my spinal cord just be a reflection or something, and my PT is not smart enough to know that? It seems to me that either he is ignorant or my surgeon is.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
