It seems as more time goes by since my fusion the pain is continuing to get worse. To those who dont know I had c5-6 corpectomy with fusion c4 thru c7. I have seen the neuro and he states everything looks good so why the pain? Could it be the added weight of the fusions on disc below? I am really starting to struggle with everyday activities. I have even began to collect all medical records for I fear filing disability is just around the corner. By the time my work day is over I am in extreme pain and come home and go to bed. Pain meds are not working very well lately. I discussed my concerns with PM doctor and he added a few meds to try and ease up on the pain but it is not working. The pain is located in lower neck only. No arm pain. No shoulder pain. Just the area below the fusion. Could it be hardware pain? It seems as if my healing process is going backwards not forward.
Has anyone else experienced this after a fusion? Anyone have any ideas why this is happening?
