Hi all I am facing allot do to passed surgeries it is unbelievable. I was wondering if anyone on this from may have some answers for me.
I had four neck surgeries. Two of them were for fusion, one was fused from the front, and one was fused from the back of the neck. Two times instrumentation was taken from the back of the neck. The pain is still horrific.
I was wondering Can the pain I experience be left over from the instrumentation in the front of the neck?
I experience, sharp spasm/ cramping pain in my collarbone on each side of the neck and in the back of the neck. I feel the pain from the color bone go under my arm to my pits and back around the shoulders. I feel a burning sensation down my left arm through the last two fingers.
Also in 2009 I was diagnosed with T7 thru T9 is herniated. They will not touch that and it is so painful. I have gotten injections for all this, and the injections no longer work. I have had PT it does not work. I went to a Chiropractor which made me worse. Medication makes me sick to the point of vomiting and it wires. I am so sensitive to narcotic's.
Now they want to put a spinal Stimulator implant in my spine.Yikes!
Then this Wednesday I do an extensive study on my bladder because I am loosing function and sure enough now I have to have a catheter. I mean really!! This cannot be happening I am 44 and have yet to live my life. They told me it was from my spinal surgeries.
Anyway I am just wondering if perhaps the instruments still left in my neck might be part of the problem with the pain I described in the first parahgraph. Has that been a problem for others on this board if so please share them.
I am making an appointment with my back doctor.
I do not mean to complain I am just so tired of the battle like so many of you.
Happy New YEAR!
