I had c5-c6 dics replacement in March 2010. Turned right around and had to have a fusion on my c6-c7 Nov 2010. Now I'm starting to have reacurring sytoms like before my second surgery.I spoke to my nero Dr who thinks that there is something going on with my neck again and recommended my surgeon is blowing me off. What would you do?

  • I would go for a second opinion NS if your NS won't see you. Did your Neurologist order a CT to check out how you're doing? Did you go for Physiotherapy after your surgery? I hope you get some answers soon. Take care. Charry

  • Welcome to spine health. Sorry that you are having symptoms again after having two surgeries not so long ago.

    Do you know if you fully fused after your fusion? How was your recovery from your ADR? I agree with Charry to see about getting a second opinion and having some testing done to see what is going on.

    Please keep us updated. Hope that you get some answers and relief
