Hey there everyone. I was wondering if anyone has heard of this before. I had acdf surgery on c5-6 & c6-7 five months ago. I have been very conservative and careful about what I do, go to all pt appts, and do not smoke or drink. I just had a new MRI (I would post a picture of it but I'm not sure how to) because symptoms had come back and my doctor called and notified me that I had bulging and compression at c6-7. First thing I asked is how that was possible being there was no longer a disk there and she said that she didn't know (she's my PMR) and that I needed to speak with my surgeon. I have an appt with him on Tuesday but geez. My injuries weren't this severe before the surgery. I just wanted to hear people's stories or advice (not medical) to help try to wrap my head around this. Thank you so much, have a happy day
