If I don't have nerve pain? The majority of my pain is within an inch or two of my discs, both lumbar and neck. The doctor told me my MRI shows 3 bone on bone in my neck and it's up to me when I want to have surgery. I just wonder if I should keep on suffering until or if I have nerve compression issues or go ahead and get it over with. I'm 58 years young and retired now and would like to be able to enjoy myself a bit. Any thoughts from you "experts"?
