I'm fused from C5 - T2 as a result of a car wreck that happened 3 months ago....
I was told today that I am completely fused! Excellent news, but my Neurosurgeon failed to mention that his results state that I have a couple of things on the go.....I obtained written results from our last visit (AFTER seeing him today) and I'm wondering why he wouldn't mention these things to me? Not to mention, when you have a problem, his Office puts new meaning to the word "evasive."
He gave me the go ahead for physiotherapy and massage therapy to begin on my neck immediately.
Here are the Radiologist's findings:
1. "Reversal of cervical lordosis centered at C5" (my neck curves the wrong way, but my muscles do need a ton of work. I'm assuming that Physio will fix this)? So far my masseuse and my PT have left it alone until it could be cleared which it was today.
2. "Mild degenerative spondylosis C5-C6." If my neck is fused from C5 - T2, How is this so?
Please chime in with any info, advice or opinions relating to this. Feel free to let me know your thoughts.
4 Level (C5-T2) Posterior Instrumented Fusion w/ Decompression (Car Accident in January 2014)
And I can't forget that I'm not ashamed, to be the person that I am today.
