Thanks for the response Dr. Coranman.
My surgeon requested an mri and X-rays with no flexion-extension imaging, which doesn’t make much sense. There is some degeneration at other levels but the pain I’m experiencing seems to be coming from the surgery sight at c6-7. Feels like a pinched nerve and it extends down into my shoulder and upper arm.
I asked him about revision to fusion and he said threat he’s only done two of those and it didn’t resolve the patient’s pain. He also said that he is in contact with surgeons at the Texas back center and they have also been unsuccessful with the revision. This is some what contrary to what I have read elsewhere. Do you have experience with these revisions and if so have you seen good results?
