My husband has had a spinal stimulator in his neck for several years. He had it replaced last year when an infection set in. Here recently I have noticed that it looks like the spinal cord is seperating vertically and the skin in that area is caving in. He has had C4, C5 & C6 fused together several years ago.

Any advice as to why this is happening?

Hi there!

Well, it would be difficult to comment on the situation without a detailed examination. The changes could indicate device displacement, degeneration, muscular causes etc. I would suggest getting this examined by his treating doctor for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
