Hi everyone, my name is Melissa and I am 29. On June 2, 2010 I had acd&f of my c5-c7. I am still in alot of pain. I went back to work on November 10th and and quit the beginning of Jan. I worked there 11 yrs. I was a housekeeper in a hospital. I have been to the doctors 100s of times, and now in the pain clinic and applied to social security. I feel so depressed, I cant sit at a computer for long, couldnt do the job i loved so much anymore. I just dont know when this pain is going to go away. PT didnt to seem to help had almost 6 months of it, and my insurance wouldnt pay no more. I still dont got alot of strength back.
I never had pain before the surgery. I just had my left arm ggo numb or fall asleep all the time, then my leg started to do the same so we decided surgery was the right thing to do. HELP feeling so depressed ugh...
