I had my neck fussed in June of 2010 and i feel so much worse. I had c3.4.5 fussed with a plate and 6 screws. Only after the surgery did my Dr tell me he used a cadaver bone. I wasn't very happy to hear that. To make a long story short it is now 4 yrs later and im having cramps so bad it feels like a baseball in my neck and the head aches get so bad i can't even open my eyes. Pain meds don't touch the pain i don't know how much longer i can live like this.
