ACDF surgery - getting worse



  • Sorry you are going through this!
    I would think you would definitely need a CT before going through with a posterior surgery - would insurance even approve it without it? I dunno.
    I've heard of the screws getting loose, I don't think that's *that* big of a deal - just go and pull them. Unless of course, you're not fused, then they'll flip you over and do the posterior fusion.
    Good luck! Keep us posted on what happens!
