Hi I am new to this site. I had anterior C5-C7 fusion on August 2010. The pain & numbness has never really gone away. I just saw my Surgeon today & was informed that I herniated C4 which is compressing on my spinal cord & need surgery as soon as possible. I am upset & nervous about another surgery. Has anyone needed to have a second fusion surgery because they herniated the disc above or below the first fusion. Also one of my two level fusion is not completely fused also so the Dr. said when he goes in he might have to fix that also. I would like to hear about your experiences with a second surgery.
