... month ago. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking I must be having a heart attack. The pain is in the middle of my upper back and down my right arm.

... I don't think your cervical problems can be addressed with just one surgery. However, a laminoplasty looks like a reasonable start. Just so you know, I have had a single-level ACDF, a single-level foraminotomy, and a multi-level laminoplasty-with-foraminotomies. I think you really, really need to educate yourself as much as possible before your appointment on Tuesday. The... (3 replies)
... I don't even recall what a PCF is. They have always wanted to do the fusion, right from the start. But I keep reading that the disc replacement is better for a number of reasons, the biggest reason being that the adjacent levels can remain unaffected and less likely to blow out. I read the horror stories here about fusions, screws and plates loose, bone that won't fuse, long... (5 replies)
... Your MRI from four years ago indicated that you could benefit from a PCF, and a doc even suggested that to you. ... (5 replies)
... owed time. My orthopedic doc today that I saw was a little offended that I went to neurosurgeon. Anyway, my fusion "failed" according to him. He showed me on the MRI the bone spurs that she either "missed" or more than likely have formed because my neck was "collapsing". My neuro I just saw a month ago never said anything. ... (9 replies)

... ants me to sleep, not sleeping just intensifies the pain. I take muscle relaxors, sleeping meds., and pain meds to help control my pain and help me sleep. Even after all the surgery I've had, I still have pain, but not as severe as prior to the surgery. ... (46 replies)

... ""I was not a great advocate for myself at the time"" I can relate. My first operation was also an emergency single-level ACDF. I understood nothing at the time, and nothing right up until I needed a second operation eight years later, when I finally started learning. ""I have an appt with an ortho so he can look at my shoulder so I will also have him look at my neck.""... (4 replies)

Before surgery... (4 replies)
