... I'm an active 35 year old female with young children. I had ACDF of level c/5-c/6 in March 07. I have had many complications arise from this surgery including headaches, dizziness, muscle pain and weakness. Is there anyone who has any information about what happens when non-union occurs. I'm getting a couple of different opinions from the docs regarding this. One says fix... (41 replies)

... Fiona, So nice to hear from you but sorry about the non fusing. I dont blame you about not wanting to go through another neck surgery. I am sure you have been reading some on the boards.

... Hi Jenny, I am going to 'try' and figure out how to get my MRI results onto the laptop (not great with stuff like that). I don't think it would be a good idea for me to try and type everything that is on the report on the laptop because of time involved, error on my part, and my limitations when my right arm gives out. I do not think that I am having an ADR. My neuro... (7 replies)
... I donít know the name of the surgery --he showed me a white disk looking cage and a piece of titanium, and said he would take bone marrow from my hip which would help with the fusion. Right now he will be fusing 5/6 going in through the front of the neck. I do have some pain in lower back, nothing like the upper. I have allot of leg pain, he said we will address that later....

... Hi Karin, How are you??? I was just coming back into this forum to see how you were doing! I am still hanging out in the Pain Management forum. No surgery date yet.... Here is an update for you. I will see the Pain Psychologist on this Wed. I am finally getting closer to a surgery date. When I see the Pain Psyc. I will ask him how long it will take him to get... (6 replies)
... but maybe worthwhile. If it were me, I wouldn't be rushing into any "fix" surgery. I would keep on the conservative path, I kept fusing for a very long time on my 2nd surgery, it toolk almost 15 months. Along with these measures you could bump up your nutrition, maybe consult a nutritionist. ... (7 replies)

... Sept 30 2003. I just found out my bone is not fusing on one side. The NS says to wait and see that sometimes it takes 1 year to 18 months to get it fused. I really dont believe it. Has anyone heard of this long. ... (2 replies)

... I am now two weeks out from ACDF with plate and six screws, fusing c/5, c/6, and c/7 using "Peak" synthetic discs. When I awoke from the surgery, I had such excrutiating pain in my left arm that I was fearful it was going to explode. My stay in the hospital was supposed to be overnight, but turned into a four-day stay filled with morphine, antibiotics, and vicodin. My... (4 replies)

... Lisa, Thanks for your reply. I definitely agree with you and will not rush back into surgery (especially given what the surgery would involve - it really scares me). It seems like there's never any guarantee of significant improvement. Now, I wish I had given my other surgery more thought. It seemed like I had reached the point where it was the only option, but since I... (7 replies)
... Hi, Fiona, Sorry about the non-fusing. What did the dr. say about the lack of fusion? I also would not rush into another surgery at this point (but maybe I would later on if it didn't get better). I feel bad for you that you still have a significant amount of pain. Let us know what happens... Lisa :) (7 replies)
