Need information on fusion from c2-c6
I am 43 year old female with previos acdf with instrumentation c4/5 c5/6 7 years ago, now the pain, numbness, headaches, chest pain, shoulder pain, weakness loss of strength is back, MRI confirms the discs above the fusion are gone, epidural no help, pain meds minimal help....now facing possible fusion not sure of the exact procedure surgeon plans on using, really dont want to know. i want to know what recovery is like. what to expect, anything that can be shared. I understand that this type of surgery is rare but I have been dealing with this for 22 years since a mva.. I had acdf in 2007 then a lumbar fusion from l3-t1 with bone grafts, I guess I am trying to prepare myself on what to expect.
