Just a quick note to say hi! Wanted to know how your surgery redo worked out. I just had a surgery redo Oct 6, 2009 at UCLA by a top neurosurgeon after a complete failure of a June 4, 2008 C5-6 fusion by an orthopedic surgeon. My orthopedic surgeon repeatidly said that I was completely fused and that the neurological symptoms I was experiencing made no sence from a spinal perspective. Fortunately, I did my own research that lead me to believe I had a fusion failure and persisted on seeing other MD's. I can't imagine going through what you went through for 3 years. The neurosurgeon at UCLA said it was almost too late for me, for amongst other neck surgery problems, my neck bone was being eroded away by an improperly fit graft leaving with with almost too little bone to fixate new hardware.
