I had a fusion on c 4,5, 6,7 on September of 2012 , the fusion did not take on c 6,7 . I am in chronic pain taking soma four times /day. I have had two nerve blocks and those only helped short term ( few days) The ortho is suggesting surgery ,more hardware . Has anyone else had this same experience? I am 45 , and have been dealing with this neck pain for over three years.
I have tried everything chiro,massage, pt , acupuncture , hypnosis , everything for your neck from amazon.com, special pillows !!
I would be interested in hearing about other peoples experiences !
