In 2008 I had anterior fusion and hardware installed on c5-6. In 2011 I had posterior surgery with harwdare at C4-7. These surgeries were brought on by my complaint of numbness in my arms while sleeping, in bed, in the car, on the recliner, only when im sleeping.
Met with surgeon yesterday, different surgeon and he thinks I now need surgery os C3-4 as there is now compression there that showed up after the last surgery. He says it is only a matter of time before i start showing symptoms such as dropping things because of loss of fine motor skills or loss of bladder control. He also said I should have it done sooner than wait till i start showing more symptoms as it might be too late then. My original numbness never went away and i have an extremly difficult time with sleep as the numbness keeps me awake.
Suggestions, advice, etc? Best neuro-surgeon in Boston area, etc? Thanks, Bill
