For anyone who has had to have another level worked on, how long was it between your first surgery and 2nd? I had 2 level March 25th, I'm having pain in my neck area again, same side, but higher, and pain in the hip where the bone was removed. I swear I feel like such a whiner and I'm really not. I am just in too much pain for me to expect that it's just going to get better by itself. If there was a problem with an adjacent level, wouldn't it be too soon? I was told by my PC Dr to call the OS. He released me 10 weeks after surgery saying i was 90% fused. I was hoping to be one who came out of surgery and it was instant relief, Not! Thanks all of you, for your knowledge and understanding.
