    Hi Dr
    I have now had my revision PCDF c3-c4
    I’m 6 month postop and meet with a neurologist and he thinks I have developed a slight cervical dystonia retrocolli.
    Is it safe to hade Botox shots in the neck with rods and screws. Is there anything that I need to think about regarding this.

    Rods and screws by themselves should not impose any botox restrictions. If however, you had a laminectomy exposing your dura and botox is used near this area, the botox could “leak” onto the dura causing paralysis. Make sure you know what was done during the surgery and especially make sure your injectionist is precise and meticulous.
