Do u still hAce pain? I had c-5-6 fusion done 2X. 1st was 1 plate 2 rods and cadaver vine plugs. The 2nd was a horrific surgery. He had to go thru the throat again but then screwed a halo in my head and flipped me and went in thru the back of my neck and I now have 2 plates and 4 rods. It wAs a long recovery and then I got cellulitis which called for a 3rd surgery and a PIC line for a month. The 1st surgery was 5/2006 & the 2nd was 9 months later and the 3 rd was 4 mths after the 2nd. It's now 10/2013 and I still have major pain.
