Hi,

 

I am looking for people that have had fusions of the cervical spine.  Would like to share and compare stories and insights.:-)

I had an add on fusion C-4/C-5 to the C-5/6.  It was difficult recuperating.  Anyway, I have right eye pain of the severest magnitude which I never had before.  I went for physical therapy after the surgery about 3/4 months later and after the pt worked on me I noticed my eye would start to hurt every time I drove home.  It only got worse and now I also had head pain.  What does anyone think?

I have had cervical anterior, posterior decompression & fusion & would not recommend this to anyone. I did get a staff infecton, my neck is stuck forward like a bird, the pain is worse. It feels like the rods & screws are sticking in me & out of me. I was cut open 3 times because of the infection & had to have a wound vac & home care for 3 months, They can`t seem to tell me if the cadavera bone is fusing. The pain seems worse that is in my shoulders,going down my arms & fingers seem more numb - pinky & ring. could go on & on!!!

I had surgery fusion and decompression for C-5, C-6 4 weeks ago. The pain is worse than before I had the surgery. I keep asking myself if this will ever go away. I am scared of what I am going to have to live with the rest of my life. I hate not being able to do anything and if I do a little housework I and in extreme pain. I am looking for someone to relate to how I feel and maybe give me some advice. Thanks
