I have been compiling all of my files trying to get on state medicaid. In doing so I had sequentially put together all of my MRI's and Cats scans going back over 5 years..... prior to my 2 level ACDF only to my 3 Level Anerior and Posterior with corpectomies at C5 an C6 and posterior rods.
Here's the kicker ... Through out both surgeries I have had problem at C3 (osteophytes and degeneration of the disc and spondolitias of the C3 vertabrae) ..... after 5 surgeris neither of my doctors (one fellowship trained neuro) and (one followship trained Osteo) did anything with my problems at C3 so guess what ... Now I have moderated stenosis at C3 piching my cord from both front and back at that level.
I am kinda surprised and befuddled ..... its off to a new Neurosurgen now to attempt to deal with the chronic pain and radiculapathy in my shoulder, neck, left arm and arm pit, hand and sometime both thumbs go out. Why didn't they do anything with the ostephytes C3??
Things that make ya go Hmmmmmmmm. Suggestion?
Confused and full already full of titanium!
