I had 2 operations in December 2011 to the above and despite extensive physio have been struggling with neck pain ever since. This operation was done to help with my balance and I must admit this is better. Had an ACDF operation in September 2010 so I imagine most of my neck pain is as a result of this. Surgeon tells me that all of my spine is riddled with severe osteoarthritis and that I may have further problems. Was also subjected to ionising radiation when involved in UK Atomic Bomb Tests in Pacific in 1958!! Any suggestions how I can relieve my neck pain would be appreciated. I live in UK.
Previous ops: TKR to right knee in September 1998 which went wrong and had to be done again in January 2000 as a revision. TKR to left knee in 2006. ACDF C3/4/5 in 2010. PLIF + rebuild in December 2008.
