Some History For Those Who Dont Know.

Acdf C5-6-7 10/2002 Still In Pain
Myelogram 3/2003 Revealed Herniation With Stenosis At C4-5 And C6-7 Stenosis Due To Spurring.
Posterior Laminectomy-foraminotomy C6-7 To Remove Spur. Still In Pain.
Cervical Radculopathy C4-5-6-7 Confirmed 12/2003
Neurogenic Bladder

Future Surgeries:
2/25/2004 Revision Acdf C5-6-7 And Acdf C4-5, From What This Report Says I Would Guess C3-4 Will Also Need A Fusion.
