  • I'll be glad to give you a "non-computer generated" welcome to the forums!!

    So if I am reading you correctly......did your doctor say he saw another area that seemed to be fused together, other than the one your doctor fused? I want to make sure I have it right.

    While there is residual pain after surgery as you heal, it doesn't seem right that you should be in this much agony.

    Welcome to the forums! :-)

  • Hi Ginar, My cervical x-rays show that I have a couple places that are starting to fuse together. Also one of my friends husband has a place where his are starting to fuse together too. I don't know if it's common I haven't done too much research on that one. I hope you feel better very soon :). xxoo
