bone spurs and dislocated disc

hi, just came over your post, i just had surgery last tues.15, i had 2 fusions and they "cleaned " out the bone spurs, omg i felt relief after i came out of surgery, no more shotting pains , feeling like my arm was asleep and lots of pain in my neck and shoulders. i know what your feeling, the bone spurs are pushing against your spine and sending pain singals to your brain. i lived with it for about a year, i tried p/t, and a few other things but found no relief.. today im sore from the surgery and taking meds for the pain, and im keeping my fingers crossed that the meds arent covering up more pain. but i dont think so, i still felt the pain in my arms even before the surgery when i took the pain killers.. i dont think much of anything will give you relief other than surgery, they have to stop the bones from pushing agaist your spine.. are you seeing your gp, or a nerosurgen? i feel your pain, let me know if you have any questions.

How fast do bone spurs grow?

Hi there! Bone spurs could occur anywhere where there is degeneration; these are not usually very fast growing. Spurs do develop with osteoarthritis, though these are unlikely to be the sole presenting issue. Osteoarthritis refers to degenerative arthritis and usually does not have any other related systemic manifestations. Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the nodule in your case. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

can bone spur be caused by Arimidex or fosamax?

One of the side effects listed for Arimidex is joint pain but I don't think the bone spur (if this has actually been diagnosed as her problem) would necessarily be related. The best source of information for your friend is her Oncologist.  Regards .....

pain continues after removal of bone spur

Hi there, Because the feet are the farthest away from the heart, they take the longest to heal. I have rheumatoid arthritis and I've had surgery on my feet three times. It takes several months to a year for complete healing and to know for sure exactly how much pain relief will be achieved. I still have a little bit of pain, but nothing like it was before. Fibromyalgia, by definition, means your nervous system is extremely sensitive to and overreacts to pain signals. That means a normal person's pain level of, say, 5 out of 10, is a 10 out of 10 for you. I suspect my sister has undiagnosed fibro (I've suggested it based on her symptoms, but she won't entertain the idea of going in for a diagnosis); she also had major foot reconstruction surgery a couple years ago and is still in pain especially when she wears certain shoes. I also have to be careful about what shoes I wear, as my big toe is now fixed in one position so it rubs on shoes that don't fit right. Anyway, I don't believe two months is a fair amount of time to expect significant pain relief; you still have a lot of healing to do. Having said that, everyone is different so if you sense that something isn't right, by all means speak up about it. Call your surgeon and ask if this is normal. One of my foot surgeries stabilized my arch and hindfoot on the right foot, which prevents my foot from rotating side to side. (Basically doing internally what an exernal brace was doing)  Sometimes my foot muscles cramp, especially at night. I find that it helps, when I get a foot cramp, to immediately stand on it. I don't know why this works! If I'm in bed at the time, I bend my knee so my foot is flat against the mattress, and press down firmly. I've had a bone spur removed from my finger, which is crooked from rheumatoid arthritis. I'm sure it's not much different from what happens in your toes - the crooked joints cause the bones to rub together wrong, which causes the spurs to develop. The tendons get stretched an eventually start snapping back and forth across the spur, which causes additional pain. I've had all my toes surgically straightened and fused to theoretically they won't get crooked or get spurs ever again. My finger has done pretty well. It's straighter than it was. Still a little pain in it, but nothing I can't deal with. I hope this is helpful. Again, if you feel something isn't right, call the surgeon's office and ask for advice.

Neck fusion, level 4

Just a brief about me: I have had 2 cervical fusions (bone spurs pushing on my spinal cord) at the same location because my body rejected the donor bone. (One March 07 Second Jan 08) (c3-c6) Last MRI showed a slight fusion at c5-c6 and no fusion at c3-c4. The plate is now pushing in the vertibrea at c3 and new bone spurs pushing on my spinal cord that have formed at c1-c2. You didn't say why you had the fusion, but my outcome has been truely painful. I look back quite often and wonder if I would be better off not doing the surgery. But I can't think that any bone pushing on your spinal cord could be good. But - I have extreme pain daily. Neck, shoulders, arms, hands and if I sneeze I am in for snap that almost paralyzes me for a few seconds. And extreme headaches daily that will sometimes keep in bed for the day. Bone spurs are a form of DDD and it happens with age. Along I could understand this if your over 60, however I am not even close. I go back to my Dr. in January to see what he suggests, but since I have no insurance, I really don't know what he will be able to do. I don't know if this helps, but at least you know that you are not alone. Good luck and God Bless. Keep us posted.

2 Failed Neck Fusions

Bless your heart, I couldn't imagine having to go through surgery twice.  I had a fusion (C5-C7) two years ago.  I've been in constant pain since then.  I also have DDD and bone spurs.  I'm in pain management, but the drugs do very little to help.  I also have the shoulder and arm pain.  I have almost lost use of my right hand, due to the weakness.  The headaches are almost unbearable.  I wish I could help, but I'm in the same boat.  I know exactly how you feel, I am so depressed I sometimes feel like I just can't live like this another day.  It's hard for family members to understand how miserable my life is.  But if you don't experience it, you could never know how bad it is. You are very lucky to have a doctor that cares that much about his patients. I have also applied for Social Security disability, I've been turned down twice and I'm now waiting on a hearing date.  All my doctors have written letters saying that I can not work.  And they still turn me down.  I sometime think that it's a mind game.  But my attorney keeps assuring me that I will eventually get it.  So don't give up, if you don't have an attorney I would get one. They don't charge you anything until your approved.  So hang in there, sometimes it just helps to have someone to talk to that can relate to what your going through.
