Been having severe neck pain since June. Had previous steroid injection 7 years ago which worked for a long time. A series of 3 injections gave no relief in August. My orthopedist says that neck pain with little arm pain does not have as good a prognosis with surgery as those who have the arm pain. Anyone in this situation had luck with the surgery? The pain is affecting all aspects of my life but don't want to do surgery if prognosis not good. Pain is quite severe but only random pains in arm. Appreciate any input. Something has to change.
