I have had on going pain and instability since acdf C4-5 in May 2013
I now have a herniated disc C5-6 per MRI
The chronicity is very disturbing . I plan to avoid surgery again since I have had neck pain and clavicle area swelling and pain since the first surgery!
I am going to physical therapy twice weekly and recently took a medical leave to deal with this constant pain .
I am also getting epidural steroids and will get another nerve ablation procedure next month. ( I had this done in Nov with some relief )
Any info would be greatly appreciated .
