47 yo with prior ACDF C4-5, C5-6 & C 6-7 severe DDD, Moderate to Severe Cervical Stenosis
I just found out i have a major problem from my 2015 ACDF that is effecting C4 thru C7 fusions. Neurosurgeon said I need both anterior and posterior hardware revision- C 4-5 screw was placed in disc space not In bone. In addition cervical stenosis has worsened and pain eith terrible muscle spasms between shoulder blades since 2015 surgery of screw mishap has been unbearable. I HAVE A NEW SPECIALITY NEUROSURGEON AND UNFORTUNATELY HE IS HAVING TO CLEAN UP THE MESS MADE BY ANOTHER SURGEON...
Hoping there may be another member thst could share what to expect Bc I am VERY TERRIFIED. Surgeon said this will be a long (6 hrs +) and painful surgery
Thank you in advance
