Hi, Getting ready to go in for a RFA Rhizotomy for 5 nerves in cervical. I have 2 cages and a plate currently, have had 4 disk surgeries and a chiari in the last 8 years. I am exhausted and my pain level is usually so bad I don't even feel like leaving the house to see a movie. I'm tired of pain meds and can't sleep without valiuum, otherwise I can't get up in the morning because I move around to much at night, if I get any sleep at all. I have decided to go ahead with the rhizotomy after having 4 nerve blocks, that gave me relief for about 24 hours each one. I'm scared of being in more pain from the procedure, I don't know if I can handle it. I have been researching Cervical Disk Replacement to see if there are any Doctors in the states, preferrably MI that would do full disk replacements for me, with absolutely no movemen left in my neck, I am useless. I have to rest my head every half hour and I am just so tired!!! Anyone out there heard anything about full disk replacement or the requirements? I have looked into an oversees program and am thinking of going this route, whatever the cost I don't give a crap anymore. I am only 38 and I can't be "this" the rest of my life, I need movement back.
