Default Updates?

I'm curious how Ginnie and others are doing now. I had C5-C6 with ROI-C (see 2012 post "ACDF Spinal Surgery with ROI-C Implant") and fully recovered other than some loss of motion. I'm now having similar severe (excruciating at times) pain as before, but on my left side (C6-C7?). I am seeing the neurosurgeon next week for an exam and MRI.

Some of the results of others on this forum concern me and make me seriously question going thru the surgery again. I'm 65 and my doctor has retired. I will be seeing one of his former partners. I expect that recovery may be much more difficult than the last time. I don't want to retire before I am ready because of having or not having the surgery.

I am scheduled to attend a week-long business conference in CA the end of April so will likely delay any surgery if I can stand the pain. The discomfort of a cross-country flight also concerns me whether with or without the surgery.

How are others of you doing post surgery?

I am still young and I wouldn't have bad the surgery if I knew all the things that I encounter were going to happen! I have seen Dr.s getting kick backs to put implants into us that have not passed the rountine of testing on these cages! These cages have the potential to fall into the spinal canal making the patient paralyzed! Has anyone heard of help for those of us with these implants?
did anyone respond? I'm not having problems it looks like it failed

I can barely use my right arm, left is almost as bad and now right leg.

Default Hello all ROI-C's

I just joined this forum and added you to my contacts. I too am having trouble with this implant. Really always have. It was implanted in fall of 2010 and the radiologist have said it is not optimally fused and is unstable. I have neck pain, headaches and occipital nerve pain from it. I have read the brochure on the surgical technique and it has instructions on removing it. I wonder how possible this is at this point??? I am a hybrid ADR/TDR patient and this is also causing complications with H.O. formation at lower levels.
