  • Hi Kari,

    Welcome to spine- health. Did all that happen from your MVA? I as well was involved in a car accident in Dec of 05 and have a three level cervical fusion. I don't know much about lumbar's as all my experience is in the cervical spine. How long ago was your surgery on your cervical spine? Have they made sure that you are fusing? What other test have they run to see what could be causing your pain? The other thing I can think of is that you have chronic radiculopathy, meaning the nerves were so compressed that even though they are not compressed still they are firing like they are. Have a look around there is so much information here to absorb. Anyway welcome to spine-health, look forward to reading more of your post.
