Well just when it seemed like the worst was over something new came up. I was diagnosed last week with Horner's Syndrome which is when one of the nerves that go to the eye is irritated or constricted in the neck. My neurologist sent me for an MRI to make sure there wasn't anything physical in there like a blot clot or debris from the surgery.
So yesterday he calls and says they found nothing there to effect the eye but they did find some other stuff. Apparently during the surgery they use traction to get into the area they need to work. So I now have a fracture in the pedicle of the T2. There is also an edema in that vertabra.
So now the radiologist wants me to come back for a CT scan so he can look at the bone better.
Has anyone had experience with this? I just got off the last of the neurontin and my upper back is pretty achy. I'm beginning to wonder if this happens often but we never find out what the real source of the pain is.
