It would be useful to know if this was this before the bone grafted into the implant or if this can happen after. "Destabilize" is such a generic term. What is going on here? It would be a scary thought if you can this innocently bump the plastic pivot of a Prodisc implant out of its socket!
3/2002 L5-S1 microdiscectomy- went well
1/2012 C6,7 arthritic, ADR recommended
BCBS will cover
UPDATE: No doc since the first surgeon has recommended an ADR. It now looks like I am up for another microdiscectomy / foraminotomy
I'm certain I am not the last for such a diagnosis change so we can all still learn from each others experiences!
