Been back to the dr. multiple times since surgery, finally found out I didnt heal completely from surgery. difficulty swallowing at times, in pain almost all of the time. Has anyone else had this happen to them? If so, what happened


  • Did you have spinal fusion surgery? I am being told that I need a fusion. I am in constant pain.
  • Hi mary

    First let me say welcome to spine-health. Have a look around and you will find many that have been in the same position as yourself. As far as your surgery, what do you mean you didn't heal? Do you have a non-fusion or psudeoarthrosis? What is the doctors plan to help this situation? What test have they performed at this point and time.


    Welcome to you as well. What levels do you need fused? Do you have a surgery date as of yet. Look at the video section and you can find a video on ACDF(anterior cervical discectomy and fusion), which will give you a good idea of the surgery more than likely they will be doing.

    Keep us updated as to what they will be doing and welcome once again to the both of you.
