I have had C4-C6 fused with a plate and six screws Dec. of 2007. There are 2 broken screws in C6 and now disc between C6 and C7 is ruptured. I have seen three surgeons about this and no one seems to want to touch it. Has anyone out there had the same or similar situations happen to them? I don't know what to do. It's almost as if no one wants to try to fix this. Ever since the operation I have had trouble swallowing food and it gets stuck in my throat every meal. Ever get something stuck in your throat and you think you are choking? Try having that happen with every single meal. I've gotton so used to it that if I was choking I would probably ignore it until it was too late and I also snore so much that I sleep in a seperate bedroom. I went through a swallow study to show them but all they told me to do was to tuck my chin in when I swallow. I am so sick of shots and tests with no help at all.
You name it and I've done it.
Nerve block that cause a spinal headache for a week.
Who knows how many CAT scans and MRI's at this point.
What can I do at this point?
