yeas its been 2 years since my accident and 1 year since my c-4-c-5 neck fusion.i have all the same symptoms plus more pain.im in the process of trying to prove that "im not better" right now.i don't think were alone im hearing many of the same complaints regarding this "make you all better since you have surgery" neck fusion. i think ,ore research needs to be done on the before and after fusion results.im tired of being told im better or i'll be better soon! 2 years and more problems!!!

Cocoahead: What did the surgeon say after the cracked implant? Was that taken from your hip or froma  donor?  I am assuming that another surgery may be needed.  

Rednkgrl5: Sorry to hear about your problems evern after surgery. I alos live in CA, Sacramento, and was wondering if you can reveal who did ur surgery so I can avoid him/her.  

Fusion is always a problem with future pain from adjacent levels.  Artiicial disc replacemnet is now available, but not sure if they are any good.  Thanks
