Multiple level cervical fusion

Seven years ago I had c3-c7 fused. I was not experiencing paing before the surgery and was not prepared for the intense pain afterwards. It took three pain clinics before I finally got some relief. I now have degeneration at the c-8 level and am having symptoms similiar to the ones before the surgery. So far only involuntary jerking movements and fingers trying to bend backwards. Has anyone had multiple fusions and did the second one help? I do have permanent nerve damage and would like to avoid any further damage, but I am also afraid of the intense pain returning.

Re: Multiple level cervical fusion

Hello I just recently had c3 -c7 fused in 2010, I was glad I had the surgery because it relived me of so much pain !! until recently 2012 I started having the same pain I had per surgery. I went back to my DR. and he told me I had a c7-t1 issue and a c2-c3 issue and that I would need to have them fused as well. So I did what most ppl would and went for a second nuro specialist and they told me the same thing Now I am about to have c2-t1 fused ! wondering does it ever stop seems like once they start fusing they keep having to do more levels !!
