Does anyone have an angled cervical plate?
I have a long plate due to doing 3 levels. I had an x ray yesterday and then had to have a cat scan due to concern about my plate not being vertical. It's angled.
The doctor is concerned. I see him today again to talk about the cat scan. If he was surprised he obviously didn't know about it. It looks like it had to be that way since surgery unless my vertebrae allowed it to slip to my left side.
He asked if I had trouble eating and such and I said it's a bit weird but I can deal with it. He mentioned we might need to take out the plate and I cringed. I do NOT want another surgery so I'm hoping it can stay this way.
Has anyone dealt with this issue?
