I had an ACDF surgery on August 20, 2009 for a ruptured C5-6 disc up at Cleveland Clinic. Had a doc appt today and got a good report. The doc was pleased to see I was starting to fuse, the plate and screws were still in place. I do from time to time have neck and shoulder pain nothing major but aches, doc said this was common. I did however develope a knot on my left shoulder blade and he will be keeping an eye on this. Doc also told me that if any loss of control or weakness to call him ASAP that there is possible another disc has ruptured. Its been a long but good recovery and I just want to say thanks to all my friends aka support chatters in here I dont know what I would have done without you guys during this time. luv u guys.. ;)
