    You should have a follow up with your surgeon. When that happened to me, my fusion hadn't taken & needed to be redone.

    A fusion can be reversed into an artificial disc

    A fusion stresses out the segments above and below. You can try prolotherapy injections to stabilize everything. You are getting headaches because you have instability

    They want me to have fusion. I'm not having a knife put to my neck. Dr told me there's a chance of wheelchair after surgery

    Yea don’t do a fusion. I had a fusion done and regret it every day. There are other ways to correct the problem.

      on the other hand, I am grateful for the 3 fusions I had 10 years ago. No problems and pain free ever since!

      I am sorry you had a problem. Did you go back to the surgeon & ask him to check the placement, etc?

        , That’s a good question but I see he didn’t respond! I regret my first one also but I don’t know about the 2nd one as I’m still in a brace! It was a fractured neck!
