Can't seem to reply to the responses posted to my post yesterday, 'Here I am again...' but I appreciate the posts and am so sorry that you are all experiencing a similar situation. From what I'm reading it is pretty common to have to undergo ACDF a second and sometimes a third time. I'm wishing I would have had three levels done as it was an option to me three years ago. I feel kind of cheated that the neuro didn't emphasize that I might have to have another ACDF in the future. I guess they aren't fortune tellers either but he said he could 'fix' me with a 2 level and I just didn't dream that I would be experiencing the same symptoms again and the thought of having to have another surgery just has me really bummed. Just have to be patient at this point until my neuro appointment when I will get some answers and options. Right now I'm just sort of in shock. Again, thanks for the responses and I hope the best for you all. :)
