I'm not sure what to do??? I had a c spine fusion in 2008 to c4 through c7. I started getting numbness,pins and needles,and shooting pain in my right hand and up my arm. My neck is stiff as well as also having spasms and it seems to be getting worse. I contacted the surgeon that performed the fusion and had a MRI.After days of calling him for results he said I have issues with c3 and c4 to get ESI injections and that he felt surgery was not necessary he did not see any cord compression I disagreed and felt like he was not understanding the pain I was in so I went for a 2ND opinion to a neurologist.He looked at my MRI and did some tests on me including a carpal tunnel test.Based on his evaluation I did have a bigger problem then what the surgeon was suggesting and there was cord compression. He also said surgeons prefer not to mess with anything that already performed surgery on that maybe why he would not suggest surgery. I would like to fix the problem permanently and not have to go through injections all my life.Considering I will most likely have to get the surgery done at some point in my life I would rather not put a band aid on a broken leg or put off the inevitable I prefer the surgery. I have children and a career to consider. I can't be immobile every few months. I'm not sure how to get my surgeon to agree with us otherwise I have to go outside of my area and have another surgeon preform the surgery. Please any advise would be helpful.
