Sorry its taken me so long. Caught a bad sore throat and takes me a few days to recoup after flyin. Saw dr oro last fri. Had mri. What they initially thought was swelling is really scar tissue. We discussed my basilar invaagination and decided not to jump to fusion but have c2 blocks and he said if that helps possibly goin in an deadin the nerves. Only he don't do the procedure. Personally id rather just have the fusion and get it overwith. But I trust dr o so I will do as he suggests. He don't wanna cause anymore scar tissue. Will finish post later, I'm in pain. Hope ya'll are well. Hugs, Dana
