Hi, my wife had unsuccessful cervical fusion. She has constant pain and no fusion. Did it happen to any of you?

Hi, I had the same problem. I expected to feel better after cervical fusion surgery, but I didn’t. My neck movements were very painful, and they still are. If I understood well, this fusion is actually locking vertebrae together and stabilizing them. I guess this is what they failed to do. I had anterior fusion, which means that a surgeon made an incision in the front of the neck. I don’t know why it was unsuccessful, and would it be better if I had posterior fusion. Anyway, my surgeon failed in correcting my physical defects, and now I’m having problems because of that.

I had a neck fusion done 2 years ago and it took. I still suffer from chronic pain in my neck and shoulder. I have since been through PT twice and am getting ready to get injections done in my neck. I was told that chronic pain after surgery is not uncommon. It sure is hard to live with.

I am 43 years olds and was told I have a neck of a 70 year old.

In December 2005 C4-C5 was fused, one year later I began losing feeling in my left arm and was also experiencing numbness...In February 2006 doctors fused C5-C6-C7 and inserted a metal plate and screws to help stabilize my neck.

I am still experiencing tremdous pain. I have gone to P.T. more times that I can count and been taking pain medication for the past two years and last week received neck injections but still no relief.....

I don't think I am ever going to be pain free and I wish someone could help me!!!
