Yepeee !! I'm starting to fuse !! I went Yesterday to my NS first visit since surgery on 12/4/12 on level c3/4 he was so excited when he saw the xrays!
So I dont go back until July for a 6 mo. visit. I still have the muscle spasms and I also hear the crunching noise from the plate when I turn my neck. I'm still taking pain meds but not near as much. Swallowing is nearly back to normal. I was getting a little concerned with that. I also still have some hoarsness but the Dr said it would go away.
