Hi Everyone. Thankful for this site. I may need cervical disc surgery next month. I have two herniated discs. I am a 41 year old female with no acute injury. My surgeon says I just have "bad luck". I was very active before my neck started bothering me. I run, walk, coach athletics. I am also a Registered Nurse. My surgeon suggested this site. I am so glad he did. Currenly doing Physical Therapy and I am finding it makes me worse. The cervical traction is painful and I get a lot of muscle spasms after treatment. I see my surgeon again on July 1st.


  • Lots of info and support here when you need it. Best wishes if you go for surgery. Take care. Charry

  • My cervical fusion was very successful. Most days I forget it was done. I have to avoid overdoing anything that involves bending my head forward for a long time and only notice a slight loss of ROM when backing up my car. Keep us posted regarding your appointment.

    Best wishes,
