I feel for you! have you gotten disability? im currently fighting to get mine tho time is running out. the stress alone of not being able to do things you use to do. much less if i have this right is the closing of the spine right? i have this too. only i had c4 through c6 bone grafts done. my surgeon says i shouldnt be having any pain much less the head aches im having and still having the tingling and still feel like im swallowing somethign ll the time. i know that its the titanium plate holding everythign together. but its annouying, i dont feel like eating around anyone because i get choked. altough i am a healthy fat girl i just dont feel as if anything is right. and its a real chore to keep my head up straight. im going to loose everything. home life i know andive already lost myjob in october due to this. i have been refused all help i should be getting.i sometimes wonder why doctors get into the fields they are in. the pocket book is more important than the patient.. im sorry for rattleing on. but be weary. and make sure you get second and third oppinions.

LSI OPERATED SO THE PAIN IN LEGS WOULD GET BETTER SO WHAT TIME I HAVE LEFT I COULD WALK SOME.I HAVE BEEN ON DISIBILITY SINCE 2002.I WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER OPERATION..
GOT TO LIVE WITH WHAT I GOT.TOO MUCH SCAR TISSUE TO BE OPERATED ON AGAIN AND NOTHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT NECK.
