Hmmm, my NS says everything looks good after my CT myelo, but he also said there is a lot of resorbing of the bone, and no fusion so far... he said it will take 1-2 years to fuse fully, yet at 5 months, nothing, in fact I am LOSING bone? I don't get it. He didn't even look at the cervical CT/Myelo, but I did ask him, and he said that there is no impingement, yet what I read said there is (mild, but he said there was none) He didn't say anything about the hypertrophy or the osteophytes in my neck. What's my next move? I will lose my insurance before I even go back to see him again in 6 months. He also said "pray" when I asked what about the numbness over my hip... in other words, he sees nothing so nothing's wrong.... I'm so frustrated!
Now my questions:
How long did it take for you to start fusing?
Did you find that you lost a lot of bone before gaining any?
Thanks for any input~
