Due to the fact that I have been in constant pain for so low I did alot of soul searching. I have been through hell and back since 2004, three cervical fusions, the implant of a spinal cord stimulator with multiple revisions from NC, PA, and SC. I was told that there was a non union, cleft, bridged bone.
I went back to my neuro whom I have not seen since '05. I had him review records, xrays, MRI's and CT scans. There is nobody that want to go through surgery again but I feel I am back in the best of hands. I always believed and had faith in him and knew when I saw him he would guide me the right way.
He has decided to remove the old plate/screws, clean everything out and put a new type of disc in and a bone, do know if it will be a mine on not. I felt like a weight was lifted.
Everyone else that I saw the reaction wss to get used to it you will live in pain the rest of your life. Not good enouth answer for me. And want to get off the drugs, or at least reduce the number being taken.
Anyone else had C6-7 redone and done maybe done by the front not back?
