I have had surgery 2 years ago, i had C5/6 and C6/7 artificial disc replacements. 4 months post op my neck pain came back with a vengence. I have now developed chronic pain and my surgeon wants to fuse c5 down to t1 to eliminate any movement that may be causing the pain. I have 100% faith in him and trust him so. I have had 8 cortisone injections all with very little to no relief.
He today discussed radiofrequency to burn the nerve endings as my only other option, i would like to hear from anyone that has had this procedure done and hear success or failure stories?
I am seriously at whits end with this injury and being only 28 with a 7 month old son i am starting to give up on life which i shouldnt be.
Can anyone offer suggestions or support please?
