I had C5-C6 disk removed & fusion done on August 6 2010, to relieve severe compression of my spinal cord, recovery was not too bad, in 6 months I had close to 90% strength & mobility returned to my arms & legs. I thought every thing was going to be fine, until about 2 months ago. I began to loose the feeling & mobility in my left arm (most affected before surgery) I called the doctor, he had me come in for a check up & then scheduled a MRI with & without contrast. He found that the original compression of my spinal cord had not been totaly relieved & was again worsening, the disk @ C6-C7 had ruptured and is now causing another area of compression. I now need 2 more surgeries one anterior for C6-C7 disk removal & fusion and one posterior to relieve the cord pressure @ C5-C6. Right at the moment he can't tell for certain which area is causing my current symptoms so I have to wait until the symptoms worsen to the point where hopefully he can be sure of where to operate first. I'm frustrated.... right now I can barely use my left arm & hand for much & I'm slowly loosing my right arm/hand & legs.
