I am 5 1/2 months post surgery (posterior C2-T3 fusion) and am still in significant pain. Went to the Neuro yesterday and instrumentation is all in place but he looked at the back of my neck and was surprised at the very deep indentation (caving in) of the back of my neck. He then ran his fingers down the back of my cervical/thoracic spine and said that unfortunately the muscles sewn together in the midline during surgery have completely separated (ripped through the sutures). He said he can go back in and sew them back together which MIGHT relieve much of my pain. Does anyone have a similar experience? What was the outcome? Trying to decide what to do. If chances are greater that it will bring relief than make things worse I am inclined to move forward with the surgery. I have been doing PT for last 4 weeks and although VERY gentle PT it is still very painful. Any help is appreciated.
