I will be haveing surgery sometime this fall for a C6-7 fusion. The doc said he was going to put a Titanium plate in my neck to hold it together. Since i am already fused at c4-5-6 , How will this plate help me? I have read some of the statements and they scare the heck out of me. Screws coming lose. and the other stuff , pain is not gone? more pain than before?
What should i look out for with this kind of surgery. Can they not put a new disck in there with the rubber spacer??
thank you for any help
