I had a cervical fusion surgery in 2011 C5.C6.and C7.Corpectomy of c6
I have a metal plate and plastic discs in my neck. I have serve nerve damage and vocal cord damage as well. I get numbness and zaps of nerve pain from my jaw right down to my fingers so painful. My neck throbs like a tooth ache 24/7 a headache that never goes away.. I have gone back to my surgeon he says there's nothing he can do I see a pain management doctor he has me on a pain medicine but that doesn't help. I do my physical therapy everyday. I learned not to carry my purse on my shoulder. I'm in so much pain that drives me nuts. You would think surgery would make the pain stop and you could life a normal healthy life. So I thought I suffer silently. So much I can't do anymore like golf or even go swimming I fine myself driving less and less. I keep doing research
on cervical fusion side effects. I know we can't give up we have to keep fighting our pain everyday.
