I was involved in a motorcycle accident June 2009 and suffered a broken neck and pelvis among other injuries. Initially, my a rod and screws were placed in my neck but in Aug, 2009 I was told that my bones have slipped from the screws. I am a smoker trying desperately to quit. I managed to go 2weeks not smoking but are now finding myself struggling with abstaining from smoking. Dr's tell me the smoking is why my bones are not healing. Can someone help me... I cannot use patches or quit smoking aides with nicotine, for it is the nicotine that is weakening my bones. Also, I have began to experience a constant pain in my arm, like nerve damage... any suggestions on that. It seems to be worsening since the surgery. Dr said he removed a few bone spurs and as I heal it may get better. He also informed me that I may need future surguries in the future as my bones get weaker, is there anything to slow down the deteration of my bones? I have many many questions and concerns, any feedback would be greatly appreciated...Thanks!
