Hey fellow pained people!
I'm Moe, and I had my first ACDF (C4-5-6) in 1993.
Was very uneventful and gave me several years of relief until about 5 years ago. Have developed stenosis in basically all segments of the spine.
Had my 2nd ACDF (C2-3-4) in July 2008.
Chose doctor with impeccable reputation who was renown for his surgical prowess.
But his reputation was not repeated with me.
He failed to perform miserably and now 1 year later I am about to undergo 3rd Cervical surgery, mainly to correct what he failed to do. This one will be much more radical as it will require a Posterior decompression as well.
NS has proposed using a Harms Mesh anteriorly to contain my calcification that causes the stenosis.
Anyone have any experience with the Mesh?
Wish all of you the best of luck.....Be well!!! .....Moe
