A little bit about myself. 4 years ago I had C5, C6 & C7 fusion with hardware. A few months ago I started having pain in my right shoulder and arm again. Being in the military, no one believed that I was in pain. For about 2 months I continuously went to sick call until they got tired of seeing me and finally ordered an MRI.
I received my MRI on 13th Nov. On the 17th of Nov. I went on sick call again to see if my MRI results came back, and they did. It showed that I have bulging discs above and below my fusion. The young Captain who has been treating me (I have kid older than this guy) said you must be in a lot of pain. I said,"YOU THINK!!????". This time he got smart and referred me to Orthopedics.
I have 14 years in the military and this will probably end my career. But that's OK. If I stay in I will probably end up a cripple. I have too much to live for. Hopefully I will get medically retired.
Thanks for listening.
