... :wave: I had my one year post-op visit with the Orthopedic Spine Surgeon today. The fusion is 100% complete and shows good positioning :) I still have some disc space narrowing at C4-C5 which I knew about :rolleyes: (we decided to fuse C5-C7 and wait until the future, or maybe never if I'm lucky, to do a higher fusion if I should develop symptoms of C4-C5 disc problems in...

... I have been informed I need anterior cervical discetomy with fusion C5,C6,& C7 and preferably this week. I have had pain my right arm, shoulder, neck, and back, and numbness in my right hand and forearm. Also some weakness in the tricep acea.

... Regarding loss of range of motion, I actaully have no loss when looking to my left, and maybe 50% to the right. Also some loss of chin to chest and looking straight up. I had a three level fusion and plating of C5-C7, but I had a congenital fusion of C5-6 so I am sure that may be the nature of some of my loss of motion. I found that adjusting to the discrepancy in motion was... (7 replies)
... HI, I had disk degeneration from C4-C7. I went on for 5 nightmare years trying EVERY possible thing and nothing worked for me. I must have done PT 10 times. I also had numbness in my hands that they couldnt figure out if it was from the nck stuff or carpal tunnel (oh boy, dont get me started on that). The neurologist was clueless. I finally had C5-C7 spinal fusion (and spur... (9 replies)

... as the worst findings. I was about to undergo lumbar fusion so the cervical situation had to take a back burner. It's gotten worse. I've had good luck with epidurals but my luck is running out. ... (3 replies)
... Mike: Actually your issues are in a good spot for minimal loss of range of motion. I had same surgery in Jan 07. I was out of work for almost 3 months. Desk job, with lots of computer work, which ranks right up there for adding stress to this particular region. Everybody fuses/heals at a different rate. Complete fusion can take 6 mos - year. I would think you might... (8 replies)

... Hi Mike, It's amazing to read your post. It's almost as if I had written it. My surgery is on November 11th. The difference is that I'm having a corpectomy as well. My insurance does not pay for artificial disks, so I am having the vertabrae and two discs removed and caged with fusion. The pain is horrible. I have been suffering since July and I am soooo ready for the... (8 replies)

... I just turned 40 this week, but was 39 back in may when I had my cervical fusion (ACDF) at C5-C7. I'll do my best to address your questions, but let me know of any further questions you have once you've read all our responses Will the surgery really help her? -This depends on what her current symptoms are and what the test results (i.e. MRI, CT scan, EMG, etc) are...

... I had fusion of C5-C7 done recently. I've had spasms in the right shoulder area ever since surgery. Didn't think much of it until after something else happened a few months post-op.
