In my mid twenties I experienced shoulder pain that never went away. Ten years later I had ACDF with a BAK-C cage. That was almost 4 years ago. About 2 weeks ago I started having pain only a group like this one would understand. It seems like I'm at the next level(pun intended).
I have a great surgeon who is about a 5 hour drive from my house. If you live in Georgia and need a surgeon ask me about mine.


  • Hi Glenn,

    Welcome to the forum, sounds like you had some tough surgeries, I have alot of shoulder and arm pain, mostly radiating from a ruptured disc in my cervical spine.

    You are in the right place to discuss chronic pain, Do you have trouble sleeping at night? I love going on the forum when i cant sleep due to pain.

    It helps me take my mind off my pain levels some. See ya around, Hope you feel better.

  • Dawn is right in that you have found an excellent place for understanding and support. Good luck to you and I will see you around the forum.
