15 years ago, I injured myself, rupturing 3 discs in my neck. I let it go as I did not have insurance, thinking it would get better in time. It got worse, turning into spinal stenosis, fluid build up and a tremendous amount of pain. 21 months ago, I underwent my first surgery, a fusion from C3 to C7, inserting a titanium plate into my neck. After this surgery, the pain did not subside. 6 months later, I underwent a 6 level laminectomy from C6 to T4. This surgery was to shrink the syrinx(?). Unfortunately, during the procedure, at C7, some instrumentation was "forced downward" while in the canal. It has been 5 1/2 months since this last surgery and I am still in great pain. I have major spasms in my thoracic region and nerve damage along my right arm. My right arm muscles have virtually disappeared. I've been doing physical therapy/massages but it seems to make things worse. Each day is a struggle.
I am on Cymblata, Gabapentin, Adavan, Mazapan, Percoset, Vitamins, Calcium, Magnesium + D.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to participation on this board.
