Alot of time has past since I was last here and had my surgery. I had one disk removed from neck and replaced with bone from hip and secured with plate. I returned to work after 5 months recovery, I had alot go wrong with recovery. Well now today here I am and I wish I would have never had it. My hip hurts so bad that I cannot sleep well, sometimes barely walk. I have severe neck pain and arm. I am worse and never had hip pain until this surgery. I struggle everyday. I cant even go back to the dr because now have no insurance as my company dropped it right after my surgery. Does anyone know if or maybe someone else experiences hip pain years after this type of surgery or even worsen with what caused you to have surgery to begin with?
Thanks Debysu
Hi Debbie, I have just read your post. I know it was a long time ago. I am wondering how you are now. I had the same operation and am in considerable pain too. My op was in 2002. Since the op my whole body has deteriorated. My neck, shoulders, legs and head are always in pain. If i do any sort of physical exercise to these areas, i suffer more pain for days. Headaches are continuous. Have you found a miricale cure. I need one. Have not worked since surgery. I woke up screeming in the recovery room from the pain. I have a situation where i am fine sometimes and other days i could just shoot myself. (not really) but the thought has been there.
Let me know how you are. Please. Nigel
