Four Level Cervical Fusion
[FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=7][COLOR=Navy]
I am new on this site. I have just been told that I need a four level cervical fusion.
Of course I am quite shook up over this news. I am going to get a second opinion, however the neuro surgeon I went to is top notch.
I guess my biggest fear is the idea that they will move my esoghagus and windpipe during surgery which may cause problems afterwords.
Also, the pain right after surgery and the thought that I may be intubated?
Does anyone have experience with this?
Thanks for any response.
