I have had an acdf c5-6 in aug 2015 because of severe cord compression and for 3 months all was good then it went in reverse fast and all my symptoms are back. Apparently the recent mri and ct are showing that the level below should have been done also which i had pointed out to my surgeon at pre surgery appt. I am so disappointed and looks like i will need another. Why wouldn't he just do the 2 level as it too was pressing the cord, but he said it looked fine. I had a radiologist (friend of a friend look at the pics and he said the decompression wasnt done very well. I have an appt with my n surgeon who did the fusion in 2 weeks but I actually have not even seen him in since before they knocked me out to do the surgery, which i found odd. i have been seeing his n practitioner for every po visit. I am speechless and feel hopeless. This was my first surgery so i didnt know what to expect. any ideas or opinions please. how do i go about getting a second opinion and does my current surgeon need to know?
