Hello, I just wanted to say my story an see if anyone has a similar experience. About a month ago I broke my C2 and am in a halo right now, it has been very difficult not doing much and am starting to have lower back pain from the heavy weight of the halo. But anywho, on the first of next month I go in to see how long I need to have this on or if i need fusion surgery. The neuro surgeon said because I'm young that I will heal in three months which would be the end of sept. but I am very worried that I might need to have a fusion, and he said they might go either from the front or back? Can anyone explain what the risks are for the surgery? Thanks!
