My name is Zena and when i was 2 i fell eight feet on my head and found out i was missing my complete C-1 vertibra, when i was 29 i had a fusion in which my Dr. used my own pelvic bone and made me a vertibra and fused it to my skull and to my C-2. Now i am 47 and have to have another surgery and they are going to fuse me from my old fusion at the C1 all the way to my T4. I am wondering how i could get in touch with people who have had this kind of surgery and came out of it.
