... Erin, Interesting that you should mention that. Because prior to my last appointment I wasn't fusing properly, so I haven't even been released to PT yet. Well, my previous appointment the X-Rays did show signs of fusing. But, my Doctor also ordered an MRI (before releasing me to PT), which he'll review with me on Thursday. I will ask about a CT Scan during my appointment on... (7 replies)
... Fiona, Did you ask the docs if you are fusing well? I had the same symptoms post op and same funky reactions from my doctor (makes you fell kinda like your crazy!). My doctor didn't tell me i wasn't fusing after surgery, I had to go find a neurosurgeon on my own, ask him the same questions. He asked me questions about my current (at the time) care from my doc and was... (7 replies)

... I promised myself that I'd drop by for an update because most success stories move on relatively quickly. My stenosis/myelopathy continues to be monitored once a year. I had my ups and downs but had a relatively fast recovery. I was swinging a golf club at about 10 days post surgery and would say that I was back to 100% by the eighth month. My scar is barely visible. I... (4 replies)
... Thank you. I appreciate the response and your supportive words. I would say the pain is about the same. Except prior to surgery I had more weakness in my left hand than I'm now experiencing and I don't recall having such intense elbow pain. The pain really gets unbearable and it's very disheartening. One thing I didn't mention in my OP, was I took a really bad fall last... (7 replies)
... First, don't feel bad. Any doctor who gets good results also has patients who struggle. Are the symptoms the same as before your surgery or different? My surgeon was surprised I had identical symptoms nearly 2 years later. He did an MRI, CT Myelogram, EMG and xrays. I think he was stunned that I had a recurrance. Now I'm having a posterior cervical foraminotomy next... (7 replies)
... I have a follow-up scheduled on Thursday with my surgeon and at this point I just hope to get some answers. I really looking to all of you for help in communicating my issues most effectively. Sometimes I feel like during the appointment I don't communicate my issues as effectively as I should. And I have to admit I feel like my Doctor's PA acts strange about my symptoms.... (7 replies)
