I had a C5-C7 ACDF in 2006, a C5-C6 posterior foraminotomy in 2008 and had C4-C5 ACDF Dec 2013. So now I'm fused, anterior, C4-C7. Unfortunately there's still some movement causing radiculopathy. It's possible I may need a posterior cervical fusion. The foraminotomy was posterior and very painful compared to ACDF since posterior involves muscle dissection.
Anyone had posterior cervical fusion? After ACDF? Is it more range of motion limiting than ACDF?
