The last time my spine surgeon worked on my neck problem, he just took a loop of wire (2010) and went around the plate and screws (2005) from the previous job he did. He put a fancy little twist on that wire. It doesn’t look like he’d be very good at fence work, but it’s lasted for the past 11 years.
It appears something is haywire (that’s a pun I used there) up there again. Going back up to get another round of MRI’s done tomorrow and see what’s happening in there now. Then off to see the surgeon next Monday.
Maybe he can put another twist on that wire and tighten it up or do whatever magic he has done before to buy me a few more years.
I was kind of shocked at how advanced all that spine surgery was when I first saw an X-ray of my neck.
