Hi I am new here I've had neck pain for years and nerve damage I house and office clean for a living my neck was getting worse ! Nerve blocks failed chickened out out of first schedule surgery 9/11 finally had acdf supposed to be of the c5,6,7 almost two months later pain was so bad which I complained to PA at post op visit and all she could do was tell me I was abusing my pain meds ( which I wasn't) anyways they did X-ray then MRI in er and come to find out dr took the wrong disc out ! There is a plate at c6,7,T1 Which nothing was wrong on previous mri of my T 1 and now a 5 mm Tarlov cyst between T 1 and T 2 . Last week had surgery # 2 to take out c5 the herniated severely desicated disc . Dr was all apologetic ... Even made the PA apologize to me ... Whom I told never wanted her near me again she treated me like a drug addict !!! Couldn't believe I was still having such pain .... Apparently dr had to repair previous surgery because I was told there different procedures at different levels. And Re do the plating .... So aside from all the pain And dr office getting a different answer from dr and the pa's I have 4 herniated disc in my lower back also. So I have been on pain management epidural injections and 7.5 norco ... This whole deal has been a nightmare!!!! And although dr came highly recommended I don't think the right hand knows what the left is doing in his office !!! I was actually sent home after surgery with out any pain meds because they never got authorization from the ins co for continued use I hurt I don't want to move and I'm tired of arguing with the pa's Dr says he will take care of me and he hasn't!!!!! I've lost faith in the medical ....
