Hey im new just found this sight im getting ready to have a triple fusion c3-c6 with bone taken out of my hip. I am fighting with workers comp. to fix me. Doc. says later on another one will rupture. But does not want to touch it till he has too. I am using Foderen Ortho. in Houston. I am told they are the best. I have major spinal cord compression. They are telling me to quit smoking. I am misserable and scared to death. I am a painter and do not know how I will ever work again.
