Hello - 51 year old male who had a very successful fusion T1-C7 Feb 2010. Another fusion performed this past May - C7-C6. Both surgeries incorporated cadaver bone to stimulate bone growth. Recently had a follow-up CT which showed no fusion at the C6-C7 site, only holding together with the steel plate. Very disappointed and wondering what happens next? I am very active - got the Ok to resume playing golf beginning July. Recently started back to playing non-contact hockey 3 times a week.
I don't know if anyone else has had this happen. Still on some pain meds occassionally as required. Pain is mostly from readjusting to the 1 1/4" I gained over the two operations.
Does this mean another operation to fix?
