Impact of shotgunning w pseudoarthrosis
I got C5/C6 and C6/C7 anterior fused with allograft, plate and 6 screws in March 2009. My pre-existing neck pain never went away post-op, but I continued my active life anyway, golfing and trap shooting in 2010 and 2011. I stopped shooting shotgun this summer when CT showed the two allografts never fused. I am going to travel to expensive bird hunting lodge before I can see my neurosurgeon, so I really need to know if I should shoot any shotgun -- even a soft impact one with light load shells. ? (my shooting on this hunt means the world to my 89 year old father, but I will follow professional or experienced advice.). Thank you!
