Well at a little over 1 year post surgery, after increasing chronic pain, I finally broke down and got a fresh CAT scan.
After having C3-C7 fused via front and back
I now have developed facet arthropathy and arthritic lipping at C-7 T-1. (might explain the pain in that area).
Haven't got the whole report yet - but it did get all the images on disk! cool (within 20 minutes of the exam!).
Next steps back to orthosurgeon to ask ... why still so much pain - and got any real long needles full of magic?
No more knives please?
God bless us - everyone!
