I hope to find some answers I can't seem to find anywhere else. I had a neck fusion in 2004 C 4,5,6. I had two herniated disks and a bone spur. Everything went well until I was rearended about a year later and it broke the lower fusion and cracked a screw.(So much for titanium) Long story short I did not want them to go back in to refuse so I took the long route taking lot's of Coral Calcium and I was finally told this last April that the lower fusion was solid.
It all seemed to get better but now I am having problems with C1 locking up, either side which is accompanied by a lot of pain. The Doc believes its the minute movement I am allowed by the cracked screw now that it fused. He wants to go in and remove the hardware and it scares the hell out of me.
I wondering if anyone else out there has experienced something similar?
