Hi All, thanks in advance for any input. I have been diagnosed with cervical herniation c5-6 and 6-7. The current doctor I am dealing with (palm beach gdns) has recommended disc replacement and partial fusion. I am out on FLMA and am concerned about recovery time? I am reading so many horror stories re post op pain? I am already two weeks into flma. I cannot risk losing my job. Is it possible to have this type of surgery done and recover in 8 weeks to go back to work. I would so appreciate any input. worried and am in pain.
