Hi there! I'm new to the forum, decided to joined after all my research online for my two prev surgeries, about 2 + years ago ago I had ACDF C4-C6 ever since after surgery I always had this horrible feeling of chocking, like someone was pushing their thumb againsty throat, sharp pocking feeling that never got better only worse! Despite of many attempts with my two original surgeons of removing the plate they told me basically I was crazy! Even though studies showed a small corner of plate pushing against my soft tissue, i finally found a great neurosurgeon that took my case (saw many others but for "liability" issues wouldn't take my case) I have had this horrible
Pain sharp throbbing in betweeny shoulder blades that doesn't go away, surgeon told
Me perhaps was because of all the problems I have been having with plate and possible not a good fusion on the second level, finally I got the plate taken out about 4 weeks ago, I have to say my NS said to me before being discharged home "you are not crazy, plate was placed on a "funky" way, I'm
Glad we took it out" I have been healing at home, saw him
About a week ago for post op, but this in between shoulder pain OMG doesn't go away!!!! It's so sharp at a times that takes my breath away and makes me so nauseous, not even with the pain meds and muscle relaxers I have been taking helps, doc said it should go away, but it only gets bad!
Has anyone of you out here has experience something like this before?? Im just looking for some input and opinions!
Thank you all! Oh forgot the nasty chocking feeling and tightness and all tha, after the plate was taken out I feel some good relief, it will get better with time! But I'm
Happy I did it! Even though I had no warranties of getting better!
Thank you again!
