8 months postop from C4-C7 fusion and I hit a huge pothole in the road! Ugh!!



  • Thank you Bruce and Sue,
    Interesting that my spine surgeon has completely released me after my 6 month check up of my 3 level fusion. I am awaiting my cervical mri that I was able to get through a doctor at my primary care practice. I too was strapped with my arms at my sides and every doctor I have spoken to doesn't seem how that could cause pain. I just got my MRI of my shoulder back and I'm baffled that it only states, "Minimal supraspinatus tendinopathy without evidence of rotator cuff tear. Minimal cystic degenerative changes in the superior lateral aspect of the humeral head."
    I will see my shoulder surgeon tomorrow. I'm glad there is no tear, but totally confused why it would hurt so severely after surgery and barely get better over almost 9 months. Anyone else have this?
