So I went to see my surgeon about 2 weeks ago. He tells me I have bulged disc at C3/4 above my fusion at C4/5. I asked for a copy of the MRI. When I get home I go over them, he failed to tell mr I have the same thing happening at C6/7 also. He tells me all the bones look great, spine great! He said I have done ALL i CAN. He said he fixes bones and it sounds like I have fibromyalgia.
Now yesterday I went to Pain Management Doctor, he takes a copy of my MRI. He then looks at the surgeon letter to him after my appt, nothing was mentioned about Fibromyalgia.
Then he said exactly what were yu told. So I say what I did above. He starts shaking his head, when I ask him why he says: He is passing the buck, they dont want to tell you it didnt go as planned. I said well he said it sounds like Fibromyalgia, he said actually it doesnt. he said it sounds to him that scar tissue is interfering with the nerves, secondly my neck will more than likely get worse which means a surgery in the future. I dont know if I have confidence in the Orthopaedic surgeon anymore? I am so aggrivated and overwhelmed! Does anyone who has gone through this have any advice?
