myelopathy from broken hardware

Started by skbiggie on 03/13/2013 2:48pm

Has anyone else experienced symptoms of myelopathy(weakness) from broken sugical screws causing plate loosening? I had a cervical fusion at c5-c7 six years ago. Am experiencing severe myelopathy for the past month. Just found out that 4 of the six screws are pulled out of the plate, one is broken in half. One Neuro surgeon so far discounted this as being the cause. Hard to believe him.
