Well, my surgery (ACDF- 3 levels) is finally set for the 12th. My first surgeon had wanted to do surgery last December but then changed his mind and did a neucleoplasty. I had many people ask if the neucleoplasty was successful. I kept giving it time but eventually I was getting worse and worse.
The only issue now is that my lumbar is also an issue. As everyone here says chronic pain is so difficult. I have been fortunate to continue working but that is only because I was lucky with my job and that I could move or sit as I needed for the majority of my day. There are days now that I can barely walk.
So, I need to get through this surgery and then maybe next year they can do my lumbar.
I am excited with the prospect of possibility of even some of my pain gone and nervous at the same time.
I want to thank all of the people on this site that have put their stories up because they have been so much inspiration and help. I got my questions for the surgeon, supplies for my surgery and answers for my diagnosis all from this site.
