I need help...I am afraid. I had a 2 level ACDF C 5/6 and C 6/7 with a DePuy Eagle Plate and 6 screws in November 2010. I went into heart failure - High Grade 2nd Degree AV Block after the surgery ( now with Pacemaker ) and continued with neck/shoulder/head/arm pain and numbness in right hand. I found out last November that I have NoN Union of C 6/7 and I have been in fear ever since. I am afraid of having surgery again and I do not know who to go to to get help? My pain is unbearable! My quality of life is zero. The only releif i get is when i am walking. Can someone please help me? Sad in Central Pennsylvania
