I just found out Friday that my artificial disc I had put in, in 2009 has come out toward my neck over 50%. I will have to have surgery to remove it. He will be doing a fusion w/ bone and plate.
In 2005 I had a double level discectomy and fusion at C5 -C6
He is also looking at my other levels to see if there is any damage there.
Has anyone ever had their artificial dis come out before? I tried searching for it but not much on the net.
