Oh, I am SO glad to have found this forum. Misery does, indeed, love company.
I have cervical disk problems and am scheduled for surgery on August 2. I will meet with my neurosurgeon on July 14 and will learn then just which surgery he will do. (My surgery was scheduled after he "pre-reviewed" my MRI films.)
I've been reading a lot of the posts in this forum and am now scared. I had no idea that neck surgery required such a long recovery. And I'm NOT NOT NOT looking forward to more pain. I've been hurting badly since January and my pain doctor has been great but the meds don't really work well anymore. Muscle spasms, especially, seem to just laugh at pain meds.
Anyway, glad you all are here. I'll be checking in regularly to read and write.
