    Post HELP corpectomy w anterior n posterior decompression/fusion

    Hi, I had a cervical fusion at c5-6 and c6-7 in october 2001 have plate with six screws also used own hip bone. the 6-7 did not fuse not sure of the c5-6 I also have fractured screws. this is what one DR wants to do
    remove hardware, c6-7 corpectomy,
    anterior cervical fusion c5-7 lliac bone graft and instrumentation plus
    cervical laminectomy c5-t1, posterior cervical fusion and instrumentation
    did any body ever have this done. also should I donate my own blood for this. what kind of brace will i be in? what will the recovery be like? did anybody ever have this much done at once
