It has been some time since I have posted here. I had an ACDF 12/9/2010 at C5-6 C6-7. Took time, but I felt better. They used a PEEK cage with bone fragments and BMP. Anyone else have BMP? I think it was considered offline for cervical and only approved for lumber,. Were there issues of over-growth? Just wondering if that might be some of my issues in my neck with pain as of now. I am having some similar neck pain but no radiation of pain.
Was rear ended 9/2/2011 which put my neck and back in a tailspin. Was diagnosed with RSD that winter and continue to have issues on/off with neck and back pain along with the pain from the RSD. I feel my neck will be like this forever (or worse) since it is 2 years post surgery and my back still has a chance. I have SI pain that really causes me pain and difficulty walking. I have had more injections both variety (neck, lumber and SI) and amount than I would like to have had. The burning in my foot really bothers me. I am not sure if it is RSD or never pain. I have to take my shoes and socks off and walk on the cold tile in the middle of the winter. I change to sandals at work and people look at me funny. Any thoughts? My foot also goes numb and I have to shake it out. I also have difficulty carrying heavy items like a full laundry basket or groceries. I feel popping in my lower back by the SI joint. Just concerned and would love a new neck and back.
