hello, i was wondering if anyone out there has had a cervical osteotomy, a procedure which essentially removes a section of vertabrae to raise the head upward.
my head was fixed in a downward gaze,my natural view was of the floor; to see ahead i had to lean back by bending my knees. office chairs that tilt were my staple seat.
the surgery was complex and of a very long duration, i'm told, and three days of intensive care follows. and the recovery is also very, very long.
like others i discounted the risks and had to face the consequences which ,after two years, now makes me wonder if the surgery was worth the troubles i live with.
i would like to hear from others who have had a similiar surgery.
