Well I saw the new NS yesterday and he was so great. Much better than my Ortho doc. He looked at my MRI and told me where he thought the problem was which was pretty much the same as the ortho. I was impressed that he was able to tell me without me having to tell him where the problem was. It made me feel like he knows what he's doing. He is going to do a 3 level fusion from C3-C6 on March 12 (next thursday). The ortho doc said C6-C7 was bad but the NS said I only need the 3 so I will go with his decision. He will be doing ACDF and said I will have bone stimulator after surgery. Anyone had one of those? How did it feel? Was it helpful? Sorry all the questions just want to know what I'm going to have to deal with after surgery. I've read a lot of positive and negative outcomes from multi level surgery in the neck. Just hoping my surgery will finally stop these horrible headaches, neck pain and numbness and tingling down the arms.
Thanks to pooh who convinced me to finally get a second opinion. I was afraid to find a new doc and you helped me to realize it would be the best thing for me and you were right.
Thanks also to everyone in chat, y'all are great and I really enjoy talking to everyone.
