Hi there, just found this site and wish I had over 2 years ago.

36 yr old female, I had C4-C7 anterior total disc replacements with fusion done 2.5 years ago which apparently never completely fused and am one week post op from a posterior cervical fusion with instrumentation.

I thought all my pain the last 2 years was just normal even after disc replacement and had come to accept it until during the course of moving my house, the titanium discs herniated and I finally got the xrays showing the fusion never really took and I had excessive movement of the spinous processes fanning open, limiting my motion and I guess causing the herniation.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and if anyone needs to bend an ear or talk to someone who had the above surgeries, feel free to message me.


  • :) hi and welcome to the forum! we are here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. i certainly hope this procedure is a complete success for you. check out the "Good News" section for a look at successful surgeries here on the forum. =D> please follow your doctor's orders and don't overdo. that is one of the biggest causes of an unsuccessful recovery. good luck! Jenny :)
