Latest Update

Late last night the neurologist called in a neurosurgeon to review all MRI’s, Cat Scans, and X-Rays….

They were able to see a crack in one of the screws holding her fusion hardware together in the neck.  After discussion it has been decided that with this situation the plate which is part of the fusion could be hitting a nerve because it is loose and thus touching off the massive migraine type headaches.
Sometime later today or early tomorrow the Neurosurgeon will be going in to either remove, replace, or repair the hardware which holds the fusion together in her neck.  He is hopeful that the fusion is in good enough shape to just remove all the hardware.
They have adjusted the pain management plan accordingly and it seems to be helping…
More to come..
