Hi everyone I am greatful I found this site. I have been suffering with low back pain for 10 yrs. Pretty much lurned to live with it. What brought me looking at differnt sites is that on 6/16/09 I was sitting at a stoplight and was rear-ended then I hit the truck in front of me. I went to er and just did xrays. By day 3 even wose pain with pains going down rt arm. Went to a different er in the place I actually live in. Did mri found ddd with new disk rupture on c3-4 and 5. Iwas already going to PM dr so he did an epidural injection and sent me to pt. After not to long I started to drop things and arms and fingers going numb and the wholebit. Sent me to NS which he is very conservitive sent back to pt and another injecton and told if not any better by dec come back. Well as time went on it just got worse. Havent been able to work since accdnt because work as sales rep on comp all day. Went back to ns on 1/5 and now he said need 3 level fusion of c 3 4 and 5. I am so scared about this. Hubby has been great through all of this and remjnded me I have been though bigger surgeries than this. When I was 23 I had brain surgry for cancer. I am now 41. I feel since this neck thing has happend that I wont be able to do the things I love the most. Riding atv shooting all the outdoorsy stuff. sorry if I am making this long.
