Just wondering if anybody out there can tell me what they think about this.
In '11 I had c 5-6 fused. 3 weeks later after dr release I had an accident where
A chair collapsed. ( I weigh about 125). Sometime later I had c6-7 fused. It has
Been a while now and I am in PM, 4 rounds of pt later, and my left side has atrophied
To the point I have to often use a cane, I'm at a 7-8 pain scale daily with meds,
And I recently got a new doc. Myelogram and Discogram say c4-5 need to be fused
And 5-6 is suspect for problems again. I also have t1 problems not addressed by dr
And lumbar bulge. My left arm is on fire, I have shooting unprovoked pain in left arm,
Stabbing in left shoulder, And I am miserable most of the time. Also have feet burning and joint
Pain all over.
Has anyone had this and did a third fusion fix the issue. It's the same anterior plate and screw procedure
He wants to do, and I am nervous that this is not the end of this nightmare. Just hoping
Someone can tell me what other options there might be. I know I need surgery
But I'm not sure this particular one is going to work. Scheduled for this Thursday.
Please respond. Thanks.
