I have a 4 level ACDF with bone marrow scheduled for Sept 3rd. I had 2 herniated disks in a injury at work back in Feb, 2012. doing 4 levels due to the others 2 are bulging. I have tried the meds, PT, and injections. They had me working in excruciating pain up until I went to the surgeon the beginning of July. I couldn't believe it when someone finally believed how much pain I was in and put me off work. Now Workers Comp has just approved my 4 level and I just went today to have my Surgical Clearance done. I also have to have a Lumpectomy done on right breast in October for atypical cells after having a breast biopsy last week. Si I have a lot of things to look forward to and to get thru, thought I would start the Sept surgery buddies so we can support each other in this endeavor.
