How can you tell if there is any fusion starting by your x-ray? She said sometimes it takes time to see results but I don't seem to be a 'typical' case, without further clarification.
I had ACDF C6/C7, there are some small changes on my x-rays from the beginning, but that could be positioning or whatever. I'm 6 months post op.
I am having other issues, the doctor has ordered a rheum panel, cbc, and cmp. Results aren't in yet.
She didn't think it would take 4 months for me to become allergic to the metal, I say 4 months, because it's been two months since this crap started.
She had said I needed a thyroid panel but I don't think that was one of the tests. She also mentioned fibromyalgia but there is not a test for that and without funky results I won't get sent to a hematologist for investigation.
I'm so discouraged!
Anyone else been down this road? If so did you eventually fuse or have a non fusion?
