Finally!!! Surgery Monday!

After almost a year of pain and SEVERAL procedures (Needles!!), I am finally getting surgery. I had a discogram two weeks ago because the doctor wanted to see which of the several damaged discs in my neck were causing all the pain. It turned out it was the C 4/5. What?! All this time my phsytrist(sp?) had been treating the C5/6 and C6/7. Ugh!
The surgeon said it would be a good option to get surgery. I chose disc replacement. I'm super nervous but also really excited to have all this mess over with.
I just wanted to let everyone know to keep a prayer out there for me. And...I'm sure you'll be hearing from me in a couple of days.
