SO I HAD MY FUSION DONE ON C5/6 IN APRIL 2015 DID NOT WANT TO DO IT BUT THE HEADACHES WOULD NOT STOP IT FELT LIKE MY HEAD WAS IN A VICE. . I HAD A HERNIATED DISC AND ALMOST COMPLETE SPINAL STENOSIS ON THAT LEVEL. C7 ALSO HERNIATED BUT WHEN IN SURGERY I GUESS I HAD A EPIDURAL BLEED SO THEY STOPPED WITH JUST DOING THE C5/6. AT THAT TIME I DIDNT CARE WHAT THEY DID I JUST WANTED OUT OF PAIN. SO I GO HOME SAME DAY WITH ZERO PAIN AND ALREADY FEELING SO MUCH BETTER NO ARM PAIN NECK PAIN. THIS WAS GREAT OTHER THAN HAVING TO WEAR THAT SILLY COLLAR FOR 2 WEEKS AND THE NO DRIVING BIT FOR 2 WEEKS. I WAS HAPPY AS HELL. NEVER TOOK ANY PAIN MEDS AT ALL . I DID HAVE A LITTLE TROUBLE SWALLOWING FOR A WEEK BUT IT GOT A LITTLE BETTER . SO SINCE THEN I HAVE HAD SOME CRAZY CRAP HAPPENING AND I THINK ITS THIS DAM HARDWARE. AND ALLERGY TO THE NICKEL.. I KNOW IM ALLERGIC IN GENERAL SO IT MAKES SENSE. ABOUT 3 MTHS AFTER SURGERY I STARTED WITH HAIR FALLING OUT AND GAINING WEIGHT. SO IN SHORT SINCE MY SURGERY I HAVE GAINED 30 LBS (NO REASON FOR THIS OTHERWISE) HAIR FALLING OUT LUMPS IN NECK AND THROAT SHORT OF BREATH FOR NO REASON FAST HEART BEAT ALWAYS SEVERE TO THE POINT OF SURGERY HEART BURN AND JUST DIAGNOSED WITH EOE , JOINTS HURT SO BAD KNEES MOSTLY MUSCLE WEAKNESS AND MUSCLES CRAMPS NEWLY HAVING SOME BAD SHOULDER PAIN AND SEVERE SWELLING FROM NECK TO SHOULDER RETAINING WATER MY VISION IS SO BLURRY SOME DAYS RASH ON STOMACH AND THIGHS. AND NASAL ALLERGIES, AND HEADACHES ARE BACK 10 FOLD. YES BEEN TESTED FOR EVERYTHING UNDER THE MOON THYROID YOU NAME IT. HAVE EVERY DR OUT THERE AND THEY ALL SAY IM FINE.. I AM NOT IMAGINING THESE THINGS I WAS HEALTHY THIN MOTIVATED NOW IM FAT TIRED ALL THE TIME AND PISSED OFF. I DID SOME RESEARCH AND IM THINKING AN ALLERGY. MENTIONED IT TO ONE OF MY DRS AND HE SAID IF YOU HAD AN ALLERGY YOU WOULD HAVE KNOWN IT THE DAY OF SURGERY. HES THE SAME ASSHOLE THAT SAID THERE ARE NO LUMPS IN MY NECK BUT THEY ARE NOW VISIBLE AND GETTING BIGGER. SO I DONT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO . HAS ANYONE ELSE GONE THROUGH THIS . I JUST WANT THIS HARDWARE OUT. PLEASE TELL ME IM NOT CRAZY..
