Nov 5, 2018 · Dose any one have problems with fusion surgery in the neck? in Spine Health

I had neck surgery fusion with screws and plate and i have popping sounds all the time and i can not turn to the right. Does any one have the same problem and should i have another surgery. I went to therapy alot but it does not work. I have been on pain meds for 11 years and off for 4 i did not want to be hook on them. I found out that i rather be in pain then being on them. I have scoliosis with rods in my back i already wrote in the blog earlier about that. Has any one had these plate taken out of neck?.

Nov 5, 2018 · Scoliosis surgery: Harrington rod placement and spinal fusion in Spine Health

Hi, i had the Luquee surgery at Stanford Childrens hospital in 1980 for Scoliosis which the Milwalkie brace did not work after 4 years and this was a study surgery that my mom wanted me to have. I have to long rods on each side of spine and all the way to my mid waist so i can bend and have kids and plus they are wired all the way down. I was fine after having 3 children and doing great untill i had a bad accident in my job that messed me up in my neck so they put a plate and screws and my neck was fine after but my lower went badly. I use a cane and i can not walk much and they want to fuse the rest of my lower back but me and my husband told them no. I was on codien tyanal for 11 years i have been off them for 4 years now. I rather feel my pain than being addective to meds plus i was off them my body feels alot better. My issue is the pain in my neck and lower back i have to sleep up all the time its very hard to get sleep. I want to try stem cell to see if it works and if workers comp would pay for it. It would cost them less than surgerys. Plus i gain so much weight that the pain is worse and i can not excersise its hard to. My specialist at Stanford was Dr. Rinsky i can not see him do to i'm adult and he is a Childrens specialist orthopedic.
