I am a 39 year old male very recently diagnosed with the following:
Bilateral uncovertebral joint arthropathy of the c6/7 level, more severe on the left as well as focal left posteolateral disc herniation resulting in severe left foraminal stenosis and likely compromise of the exiting c7 nerve root"
In laymen's terms I am in the most pain I've ever experienced and it is unrelenting. Anyone with a similiar injury that can give me some feedback on the injury, surgery, etc as well as any suggestions on an effective pain killer that won't make me feel like a zombie all day. I am currently on Morphine and Gabopentin.
Thank-you and I sympathize with all those who suffer from this and more severe unjuries.
