... Everyone is different so i can't say if the surgery is something you should have or not. What I can tell you is that I am a 40y/o professional fireman that had a c5-6 ACDF w/ hardware in 03/2010. I was back on the job about 07/2011. I suffered from an on the job injury for nearly 5 months before the surgery and pt, meds, rest, etc. just didn't fix it. Wish I had done the... (9 replies)
Lordosis, C5...
Sep 16, 2011
... It was a theoretical summary. Ouch... That is not good at all. Ahhh, I get you know. I try to put my head on my chin, but I never wake up like that :( Though I rarely sleep for more than 3-4hrs per 9hrs I am in bed. My neck muscles are stiff as well and want me to stretch them out to, but it hurts like hell when I do that. I just want it sorted. It is doing my head in. That... (11 replies)

Lordosis, C5...
Sep 12, 2011
... ur neck. When you fell and hit your neck, you caused the vertebrae to go out of alignment and it is now pretty straight and even slightly curving backward at the C5 level. This brings your head downward and makes holding your head up, painful. ... (11 replies)
... Today marks 4 weeks - to the day - that I had my ACDF at C5-7. I lurked on this board for weeks before the surgery and read lots and lots of posts. Thanks to all who posted the good, the bad and the ugly. Because of all the information here, I was able to set myself up before and after the surgery. My experience, so far, has been great. I spent the first 10 days at... (4 replies)

... Hello, I'm Akiko, and this is my 1st post... Well, I fell backwards on the back of my head, dislodging my C5-C6 vertebrates. These were fused at Mass General Hospital exactly 2 months ago (6 hour surgery), which was followed by 3 weeks at Spaulding Rehab. I've weaned myself off the neck-brace over the last 2-3 weeks. However, I still am having a lot of arm, hand and... (4 replies)
... I'm 9 weeks post op C5-6-7 and also have pain in my left arm. Just saw my Dr yesterday and stated this is very normal. Nerves take much longer to heal than bone. Can take several months to fully recover. I continue to stay POSITIVE as dwelling on the negative will only delay your recovery. (15 replies)
... Due to a neck and shoulder pain I did an MRI. The result summary reads out as following * Left posterio-lateral disc-osteophyte complex at c5-6 level is indenting the thecal sac, left exiting nerve root and mildly narrowing the left neural foramina * Right posterio-lateral osteophyte at c4-5 level is indenting the thecal sac. No significant root indentation or foraminal... (2 replies)
Subluxation C5/C6
Apr 20, 2011
... Reviewed the results of my x-rays with my Dr. on Monday. He said I have what is commonly referred to as military neck and military spine. My neck has no real curve to it. Also I have many areas from T1 through S5 that have lost the natural curve. He did note disc compression around L5-S1 as well as some slight calcification of the discs between C5-C7. He was able to adjust C7... (6 replies)
Subluxation C5/C6
Apr 18, 2011
... In 1991 I was involved in a car accident and suffered immediate neck pain. At the hospital I had x-rays done and the doctor told me they showed subluxation of c5/c6. In 1995 I stopped going to the chiropractor as all of my problems seemed to be a thing of the past. The only lingering symptom was the migraines. 2 years ago I started to notice some blurred vision with my... (6 replies)
... To anyone: I am almost 6 months post surgery anterior fusion of C2-C4 and posterior hardware added to C2-C5 to raise head. I am completely fused from C2-T3. When I wake up in the morning I feel so weak. I cant even push the covers off of me with my hands. I have to kick them off with my legs. I also have so much pain in my shoulders, chest and collar bone areas. I... (46 replies)
... They will be fusing c2 to c3 to c4 to c5 so basically three levels. Also with decompression between c2 to c3 because of the current bone on bone situation. ... (46 replies)
... Hello! I am facing fusion surgery C2-C5 in about three weeks. I have a really narly C2-C3 facet issue with bone spurs and bone on bone that causes constant pain. The CT shows some degeneration at 3 - 7. When I had my facet injections it did not relieve the pain which gave the NS pause to move forward. In fact the injection in the c2,3 joint hurt so bad I nearly came off... (46 replies)
... Jenny and SO125, I was just hoping to be farther along than I am as far as recovery is concerned. I never thought I would be this weak, still having sleeping and swallowing issues and getting pain on/off like I am. Never having surgery before I guess I was uninformed and didn't research the recovery enough. I only researched the surgery and surgeons. My fault. Just glad... (5 replies)
... I went back to work as a teacher (4th grade)on 2/14 (Monday). There have been many ups and downs. After school each day the recliner was my best friend for the entire evening other than dinner. I was exhausted, sore and achy a few days but in excruciating pain for 2 of the days. (took hydrocodone which I hadn't done for a very long time) Not sure what I did to cause the... (5 replies)
... Hi, I had ACDF C5-6 C6-7 in December. It is a very scary thought to have surgery. You will know when you are ready to have the surgery both emotionally and by talking to your surgeon. If you have any questions feel free to ask. That is what these forums are for. (4 replies)
... I had C5-6-7 ACDF on 11-9-10. The neck brace is a security blanket for the first couple of weeks, but it's really not required. Between the friction of having the cadaver bones put in tightly with your neck in traction, and then released, and the plate, the whole assembly isn't going anywhere. I wore the neck brace for about two weeks, more because I wanted to than because I... (14 replies)
... I only had ADCF at the c4-c5 level on 3-3-2010. Im still in pain, I lost the use of my left arm above the elbow although it is slowly making a painful recovery...I got on here looking for an answer but its like the surgeon told me everybody's different and nerves are tricky. Mine was cut and it has to "regrow." Nothing has taken away the pain but has masked it a little. I... (14 replies)
