C2-Thru C-7 Spinal Fusion

I am scheduled April 18th 2013 for a Cervical Spine Surgery C3 thru C7 and some work on the C2, I had C5-C6 Fusion in Dec 2008 and it did not take properly, so here I go again. thru the years the pain in my shoulders and arms have gotten to a no relief point, also I am now experiencing severe headaches and pain down the mid section on my spine. I will also need a acromioplasty surgery when I recover from the spine surgery. I am not nervous one bit. and are aware of the risks involved. I just want to get the needed relief I need. and maybe I will lose the second chin I have developed in the past two years. I would like to hear testimony from others who have had this done, so I can get ideas as for the relief, recovery etc. I am a recent retired (Disabled) veteran and want a chance to live pain free and enjoy life the best I can.

I Look forward to the feedback.

    I have no info for you, I have never had cervical issues. I simply wanted to thank you for your service and wish you the best.
    33yo mom of two. My surgical history...preadolescence scoliosis, kyphosis, and a hot mess.... 5 spine surgeries and lots of items added I wasn't born with (titanium, peek, surgical steel). Guess cremation is out. TSA loves me.
