C-5 C-6 second attempt fusion
Good day everybody, I was searching the Internet trying to get answers on my post op symptoms and found this website. 1 week ago today I had fusion from the back of my neck. This is a second attempt, 6 years ago I had a c5 c6 discectomy and fusion where they went in through the front. And between then and now two of the screws broke resulting in a non union. Last night I experienced extremely bad night sweats. And was wondering if I had an infection. Also I have been having trouble having a bowel movement due to the medication. The stories I have read on the forum have been extremely helpful, but was wondering if anybody had any more advice that could be helpful?
