Hi, & help :-(
I'm a 38 yr old teacher & mom of 2 who's been dealing with a c5/6 herniation for two years- no rhyme or reason to the sudden onset of pain then. I've done two sets of 3 epidurals and a year of mckenzie therApy. I was feeling very positive, but recently lost hope & hit the "it's time" phase that all the drs and therapist said would happen. Acdf was recommended by one, and another dr in NYC said he wouldn't operate after looking at my MRI (he chose who to consult based on MRI, & I didn't make the cut- no pun intended). I am seeing a neurologist in two weeks but I want that sign- esp since my two surgeons gave such utterly different advice! Can anyone relate to this and provide any advice? Typing this hurts
Thanks. Oops ps- recent MRI showed my c6/7 disc to be worse than the c5/6.
