C-5 Bone graft fusion with metal plate and screws
Husband fell at home 2 years ago only symptoms were sharp searing pin in fingers,hands & arms swelled up to the elbows. Three days later at the hospital they found he had a broken neck (the doctors words exactly) The Neurosurgeon did the Bone graft at C-5-6 also the plate and screws.He also said my husband had Ankylosing Spondylosis no blood tests were done.Husband neck always bent forward some we thought it was due to him being a Welder.
The Neurosurgeon that did the surgery left the practice another took over the case he said the Bone graft never took husband was to wear the hard cervical collar 24/7 even to sleep in.Lost his job,health insurance now goes to the VA all the VA says not Service related so they do nothing.The second
Neurosurgeon said if he falls he will be dead or a Paraplegic ?
Doctors sure do not care about patients any longer they do as little as they can get by with now what does my husband do?????
