Previous C3-T1 anterior/posterior fusion/lamendecty. Two MVAs in 2013, second resulted in fracture of C7-T1. Hardware was removed posteriorly and replaced with rods and screws from C3 to T5. Fusion of C7/T1 as warranted.

Now I have worsening numbness across t spine and tingling and pain which is getting worse. Like my body does not like the banked bone or hardware. I usually recover quickly from previous 4 neck surgeries.

Having a bone scan and CT with contrast, since MRIs are shadowed by hardware. It is affecting my posture and I feel generally ill. Having a third opinion at University of Maryland next week
