Hi everyone, well i just had posterior cervical fusion on c6-t1 and my family and i are still trying to figure things out. If anyone has any information on recovery times and just general informaion we would really appreciate any informaion anyone has. We go to the doctor again this friday and it will be six weeks and we are not sure what to ask or even expect. Help

Hi Eric...

That's a really short fusion. Was it for scoliosis?

Regards,
Linda

No, it was due to a car accident. I fractured c7 and tore ligaments in c6 and t1. sorry it was so short as i am not used to using a bulletin.

Hi Eric...

Most scoliosis fusions are much longer, and only occasionally involve the cervical spine, so I think your recovery might be very different than ours.
