two level c-spine fusion

Started by Honda on 07/08/2015 6:29pm

I had my fusion done in aug. 2011 did pt went back to work a year later pain worsened. I had pain radiating from neck to left shoulder and bad headaches. The doctor did several injections in my neck and this past october did a occipital nerve cut to both sides. Headaches and pain remain. I had a MRI done this year showing c-4 has a bulge above my fusion and the one below didn't look good but had a lot of artifact . Dr is going to have my do PT that puts me in more pain and sent me back to work with restrictions. I'm a federal nurse. I don't know what to do. I go back to work the 27th of this month. There are days I can't get out of bed. He also said I would have to get pain medication from my regular doctor. Does anybody else have this problem? What can I do? I'm afraid I'm going to loose my job. I just want to be fixed and feel normal again. I'm only 46 yrs old and feel like a 100. Any advise would be helpful.
