Will 3rd time be a charm.
I go in monday for a ACDF on c5-6-7. In March 09 I had ACDF at c6-7 and the donor bone was bad. It started breaking down within 6 weeks. In October 09 I went back in for c6-7 repair. This one is partially fusing but only on bottom half. The top is not fusing and the screw is slipping. New doctor looked at MRI and xrays and said I need 3rd surgery and he would have fused c5-6 as well so back I go. Anyone else have to go through 3 surgeries for the same issue?
ACDF C6-7 3/31/2009. Disc herniations and cord impingement at C5-6.
