Hi, I am a C-7 quad with good hands and a very long unstable spine. After 17 years i have worn out several discs in my back and have had un-real amounts of pain both muscle/skeletal and neurogenic pain more and at higher intensity the last months.|
My spine is colapsing on itself where a couple of discs are shot to the point they need to be fused together with bone, pins, screws, plates, and rods.
I'm going to loose flexibility and have a long hard recovery.
Anyone know any one who had/has it done. Mine may go all the way to the pelvis and up to T-8. Should give my upper muscles a good foundation but I'll be fairly ridged.
Any advice or suggestions or just let me know that there are people who have been through it and are still independent.
The risks are bad. Like blindness, more paralysis, stroke. I could also shed so much pain.
