Although not new to neck/spine issues, new to this board. I just recently had ACDF w/allograft & plate to C6-C7 last Thursday. Previous surgery was C5-C6 ACDF w/autograft back in 1997. Never really resolved the issue in 1997 but did decrease the pain. Had a few rounds of Epidural Steroid Injections, pain management, PT, you name it, I tried it. It got worse after carrying triplets for 8 months and giving birth to them. I'm sure my job in federal law enforcement doesn't help either.
I'm recovering at home with my Percoset & Flexoral(sp?). I feel a little better but it's only been 5 days post-op. My NS left a bone spur intact, said it would shrink on it's own and if it wasn't causing any trouble he wasn't messing with it. Alrighty, enough about me, I'm sorry if this sounds mumbled but I'm writing under the influence. LOL. Looking forward to share stories, etc.
