non-union after fusion
I've seen a couple people on here mention that they did not fuse after a cervical fusion. What did you do after that? I thought my doctor mentioned that another surgery might need to be done. Does this mean you have to have the fusion all over again? I had the flexion and extension x-ray and it was suspicious because my bones appeared to move. I am going in for a CT next week to do a "reconstruction model" that is supposed to help determine if I did in fact fuse. I had my fusion about 14 months ago and I am being treated for chronic pain post-op.
If they do a new fusion, do they just do the same thing over again, or is it different?
