| | C1 C2 fusion & removal of rheumatoid tissue
Will be seeing the Neurosurgeon next week for removal of rheumatoid tissue at C1 C2 level in neck with a fusion. Neurosurgeon will do the surgery to remove the tissue at C1 C2 level through the mouth. This is scarey. It is called "transoral" aproach.
Is anyone out there familiar with this procedure and it being done through the mouth? Am really worried. Doctor says will need to use a feeding tube through the belly button because of the incision in the mouth.
Appreciate responses. Thanks.
