In March of 2006 an overly aggressive surgeon fused c3-4-5-6 in my neck. Told me he was going to just fuse 3 vertebrae. But as he bragged to me later, "he does the big jobs in town." Consequently, I have been living in constant pain. My pain is totally unlike any of the symptoms that drove me to surgery. Basically, if I move my head, my left arm burns horribly. Also, I'd like to mention to people considering this surgery, a huge loss of neck movement results in fusing this many cervical vertebrae. The surgeon said I would loose 15%. Truth is in some vectors it is 80%. Don't do it unless your life is threatened.
Anyone had any experience in dealing with this kind of failed spinal surgery? Any therapy know to help?
