I have posted before in regards to three cervical fusion 03 04 05. Been struggling with a spinal cord stimulator and multiple revisions.
I am reaching the end of my rope in what to do in regards to to non union/bridged bond. I have been to I think the best doctors from MUSC and Spine center in Charleston, Neuro in Charlotte and Duke Univ. It was found that that there is a non union and that my pain has gotten sooooo much worse since its removal. My left arm in numb and heavy all of the time, the spasms in my left shoulder never stop, my rom "non existent", constant pain in my neck and back. The dizziness, off balance and falling is this normal.
Last week drove to my disability attorney and by the time I got home within a couple hours I could not even move my neck to the right (good side). Back to dr and wearing a soft collar to help.
Right not I feel as though the bones below C6-7 are not only soo tight and sore, they feel like they are coming through my skin.
I am on multiple meds, patches and the only relief I get is lying flat on my heating pad. Great life ya think? I have been told be all of my doctors who I have alot of respect for but enough. They say that if they go and fuse that level it may or may not help with my pain and the problems with my numbnes.
I can't find my crystal ball but I am at the point where I need to call my dr and make an appointment and tell him do it. No one should have to live like this and be almost a prisioner of their home alone with my dogs.
