I was in an accident about 13 years ago and was hit by a drunk driver. I was told then that I had a bulging disc in my lower back, which I just had PLIF in L4-S1 on April 9th of this year. I was also told then that I had no arch in my neck. I am having really bad neck pain now and was wanting some advice.
My PLIF has seemed to help a lot with that pain, but I don't know that I want to go thru it again for my neck. I haven't returned to work yet from this, and would like to get it all taken care of before I do.
Any advice is greatly appreciated! I am going to call my surgeon tomorrow and discuss it with his office as well.
2 more bulging discs; spinal stenosis; osteoarthritis; reverse lordosis at L3; degenerative disc disease; inflammatory joint disease; nerve root cysts at T1-T3; 2 level PLIF 4/9/09 and 3 level PLIF 9/6/12 with hardware both times
