I need to have a 3 level fusion for my cervical and my lower back but, I am just talking about my neck for now.
I have not been able to sleep on my arm for months. The pain is too much, my Dr. orderd an MRI of the shoulder because he told me the cervical fusion surgery will NOT be a sucess if I have a shoulder problem.
As some of you know I had a rhizotomy 3 levels both sides for my lower back and ended up having seizures in recovery due to wrong medicine given to me along with going into respitory distrss.
During my stay with having the seizures I woke up a day and half later and could not move my arm. They thought it was either from me thrasing from the seizures or from them moving me. I left came home and knew my Cervical surgon had orderd an MRI for MON so I went
I was told that I had severed the tendon in my shoulder my Dr's office even said this and I was so upset over this than I found out that it is a tear not severed and I have bone spurs and severe arthritis.
So, Now I am so worried that my pain even tho I have all them disc protrusions that the pain that I have is from my shoulder. I have not spoke to my cervical surgon yet regarding the outcome of the MRI that he had me go get, he did tho send me to the shoulder Dr. who could not tell me if this would be a problem with the neck surgery.
I dont know what is next for the pain, Can anyone give me some feedback pls.?
