Here's my 4 month post op acdf update.
I still have headaches and neck pain and stiffness thats constant. The tingling and numbness pre op are gone so that's a good thing.
When I left a message with my neurosurgeon saying I still had some issues he replied by e mail saying he considered my surgery a success and that the other issues (pain in neck, stiffness, headache may be something I will have to live with, That's fine I can handle that and am glad I had the surgery.
However, I would have thought that he would want to do an mri at some point.
He said he will however do an xray of my neck to make sure everythings in place. Does an xray show if my neck is fusing?
Thanks for your advice and I hope you are all well.
