You may remember I had my L3-S1 fusion 02/2010 (after L5-S1 in 1987 and then L4-S1 in 1993). The back is reasonably well, although I have a permanent back ache which the doctor says is mostly arthritic type causes. I don't have nerve pain often it's just an ache that can get worse if I overdo it.
So now we are looking at my neck. The spine surgeon did an xray of me looking down a few months ago and C6 isn't fused as it should be from my C5-C6-C7 fusion in 2006. And C4 is in bad shape. So I may be headed for a C4-C5-C6-C7 fusion, possibly as early as March.
I'm looking for experiences, advice, thoughts, etc. My first ACDF was really easy. I expect it may get harder the second time around?
