5-6 Fusion

I had a 5-6 plate and screw fusion and 7 surgeries on my right shoulder including removal of the AC joint. I got a Golden Staph infection from shoulder surgery No. 4. NOT FUN. I am now in CONSTANT pain in my neck and right hand gets pins and needles. I have been told I will have to wait till I'm 60yo (I'm 49 now) to have the next fusion @ 4-5 and 6-7. Not sure I can last that long. The constant splitting headaches never ease.
