Today I saw my surgeon. My ALIF surgery is 10 1/2 months out and he said its looking excellent. That was the good news.
The bad news: my cervical spine has gotten seriously worse.
I know its bad when he gets worried. My C2-C5 is a complete mess, severe kyphosis, DDD and it appears that c2 & 3 have auto-fused. They also have lost a lot of the normal shape that they should be. This bites!
Have to get an MRI ASAP and see him with the results in 2 weeks. I just need time to wrap my head around this and try not to freak. I just can't believe how bad it got since the last x-rays.
Oh well, got to go to the bus stop now.
