Cervical spine injury question
#9
Jayne at the next appointment with the neurosurgeon I will ask him about how issues with scar tissue will affect the outcome of this surgery, this is a big worry for me.

Sometimes I feel like I am choking in the area where the left tonsil is.

AQA the physical therapist questioned me about the position I sleep in. I told her I start on my side with the head inline to rest of the back, course I don't end up that way.

I can only sleep for short periods at a time due to nerve pain and the arms going to sleep.
I always spend part of the night in the recliner.

I spent 11 years of my life sleep deprived caring for my medically fragile daughter until her death, now my body does very poorly without sleep.

AQA the problem I have with during the day is the numbness, tingling, and burning pain in the arms & hands.

Maggiemae I also tried traction, for cervical injured it can only be increased a little at a time.
The therapist tried 15 lbs of traction with me then increased it to 18 lbs and my condition became worse. In the end the therapist was only able to increase the traction to 16 lbs.

Will an ortho or neurosurgeon be doing your surgery?
