Hi, I live in New Zealand and had an accident 2 years ago resulting in a prolapse disc C5/6. Had Anterior fusion and graft in Aug 2007 and have had ongoing pain ever since. My surgeon told me the fusion was solid and referred me to a pain clinic for chronic pain. I demanded a 2nd opinion and discovered that the fusion was not solid. I'm now told I need to have two further surgeries which may or may not resolve the pain.
I am so glad to have found this site, hoping to get some advice and support from people who have been there before me.
