I had a spinal TB and my C1, C2 and C3 area were infected. I came to know about it in April 2010. I was admitted to hospital for severe pain in June and one fine day there was a sound and probably something cracked. I went into full body paralysis however after 9 hour operation and few Titanium screws and rods. I was saved, however went on to recover fully in six months time. Now it is July next year and i am fully mobile with no paid however today after a routine CT Scan my C1 was found dislocated to 5 or 6 mm. I wonder as i have no pain or inflammatory symptoms. I have been told that there will be a major surgery again and i have to through all the ordeals of recovery again. Please advise...
