Has anyone had neck fusion after thyroiectomyectomy for thyroid cancer? I had to have my thyroid removed back in May 2015 due to thyroid cancer and now I'm supposed to have spinal cervical fusion on Wednesday 1/27/16 I think I'm way too scared to do it. I already have complications with swallowing and voice problems from my thyroid removal. My neurosurgeon doesn't listen to me about my concerns regarding having surgeries so soon together. I am meeting with another one on Tuesday. I am so scared to do it! I do have weakness in my right arm which is my dominant arm and that's why it is recommended that I have spinal fusion in my neck. I was already scheduled to have spinal fusion in my lower back that's why everything is moving so fast. They just switch that back fusion to a neck fusion. I just wanted to know if there is at least some other people who have been through a similar situation.
