... Karen: :wave: I am 39 and had a C5-C7 ACDF on 5/18/06. I was in the hospital for 2 nights (partly due to the fact I did not sleep at ALL the first night and partly due to the fact I wanted to have the pain control that the IV allowed, so my doctor and I agreed on a second night). Medical insurance will, generally, pre-authorize 1-2 nights in the hospital. Any more than... (6 replies)
... Hi icedad, Sounds like you've got your winter all planned out. Just kidding. I've been there, done that twice. First time c6/7 and the second a year later c5/6. It worked well for about 12 years. The first fusion was done with donor bone. It was late 1989. Subsequently I found out later the donor bone wasn't so good then because AIDS fear was affecting the cadaver quality.... (1 replies)
... Hello Everyone :wave: I had a Cervical Fusion & Discectomy with plating & allograph on level C5-6 on Monday. Unfortunately, the day after surgery I had what they think might be a panic attack.

... I just signed up. I had my first fusion in 1992 (C5-C6) with a bone from my hip. I gained back most of my strength, except I encountered some atrophe in my right pectoral muscle and on the right side of my neck. I managed to deal with some on-going pain without medication. My second surgery was in 2000 on C4-C5 with a cadavar bone and a titanium plate. I have much more... (2 replies)
... Well, A reivsion means to take out the titanium plate/screws and install a new one. I did not fuse correctly.

... Had C5-6 procedure with Dr Jho. Surgery went fine. He found mostly bone spur. My first procedure with a local NS many years ago was mostly disc material. But with age and an old injury came the bone spur. Symptoms seem to be gone. Hopefully I am good long term. I have to give him this as far as the entry hole he went in, it looks like it will probably heal and you would never... (3 replies)

... On July 3, 2014, I had a 3 level acdf on C3-4. C4-5, and C5-6. At my 2 week checkup, my x-rays showed that the lowest level, C5-6, the hardware was not taking hold. So, I was set for another surgery one week later, July 25, 2014, to repair the hardware at that level. I have osteoporosis and very thin bone, so my doctor put in a larger plate and screws. I do not have to... (1 replies)
