I am having a ACD at c3/4 and 4/5 -take down fusion in 5/6 -C4
posterior wiring BMAC AND SCM

Had surgery in 93 and 2001 with plate both from front of neck


  • I had 3 level ACDF surgery with doner bone and plate on Dec. 30 2010. I feel so much better after the surgery. Only took pain pills for one week after it was done. Had to wear a hard neckbrace for 6 weeks after, but recently got to stop wearing it. Now I'm able to bend some like to tie my shoes. Also able to drive short distances. Go see the surgeon again at end of March to see if fusing has begun.
