Hi,
New to this forum. You guys are great. My husband is having Posterior Cervical Fusion and Lamectomy in four weeks. From the C3-T1. We are very scared and really don't know what to expect.I have found a bunch of stories on here where people have had 2 or 3 levels done.But not as many as my my husband is having. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much,
Debbie :??

  • I think it's great that you are searching for information for your husband. I know a gentleman here, who had an accident at work and required C-3 through T-1 fusion. He was able to return to work 3 months later and what blows my mind, is that he drives 2 hours one way nearly every day to go to work. He says he's uncomfortable at times, but never complains. If I can get in touch I'll ask if he's willing to email you. He still goes to PT even 1 year post op. It has not been easy for him, but he has refused to let it take his life from him.

  • Just checking to see how your husband's surgery went. Mine had a c3-t1 fusion in 2006 after a failed fusion using donor bone (this after MVA in 2005). We are still struggling to find a solution to some of the symptoms he is having and the debilitating pain he has on a daily basis.
