How long after a fusion to I have to wait before an MRI ??
I was told I had to wait 60 days before an MRI after a fusion. It seems to me the metal will be the same in 60 days. I was told I need a surgery on my neck by a second opinion doctor. This surgeon is probably the best we have in the area. I wanted to find out as soon as possible what I need done. This surgeon said I needed a fusion in my neck without any x-rays. He did a exam on my spine. I asked him how he could tell I needed fusion on my neck without any x-rays or MRI. He said the way my reflexes were. An my arms and hands go numb nightly. I thought it was carpal tunnel. How long do they wait before they do another spine surgery? Thanks Sam
