I had ACDF done on c5-c6 in April 2014, but my c6-c7 was found to have congenital partial fusion, meaning that my c5-c7 is joined in one block.
One thing I would like to ask here is:
Do you encounter lower back pain after surgery?
My lumbar spine is found to have hyperlordosis and my pelvis is excessively anteriorly tilted. I googled research a bit. It says 7 out of 10 americans experience lower back pain following ACDF surgery. I have a mri check on my whole spine, there is no disc herination in my thorasic and lumbar spine. And most PT, chiroprators, orthopedic dr considered hyperlordosis was the cause based on my X-ray.
However, This "side effects" has not been mentioned by most patients who made their testimonials in YouTube.
I hope to seek your advice to see whether compensational change takes place in lumbar spine or pelvis.
Stay happy no matter what
