I'm having recent thorasic pain at about T8. I had PLIF as I wrote below, and it's been over a year. This new pain has been around about 2 months. Anyone have pain and issues higher up after surgery (issues that wern't there before surgery). No xrays yet-but will ask surgeon to check on 22nd. It feels like bone "ache" and muscular-kinda like the pain I had at the beginning of my lumbar pain. Anyone have other levels "go out" as a result of (and I know I won't describe this well)the soft(natural)spine being set upon "hard" hardware. Is this compensation? Not sure if it's structural or musculoskelital. Really asking if anyone had structural changes--that's what I'm most afraid of. :<
Thanks as always!
