hello all, there are so many failure stories on here... so here is a good one.
I have a badly protruded C6/7 disc causing foraminal stenosis. Im 37 and its been with me for 6 years after a skiiing injury.
after 4-5 bad flare ups, extreme pain.... I was on my back for 3 weeks after the recent one and took the plunge. had the posterior foraminotomy surgery a month ago.
for the 7 days post surgery it still hurt and I was worried... then slowly it started feeling better. then one morning 10 days later it was almost gone. now 4 weeks later its like nothing ever was wrong.
REMEMBER THAT YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY... just because mine worked, doesnt mean yours will too.
I hope this gives people some hope. my surgeon said to me prior "I would estimate a 70% chance of complete relief of or significant reduction in your pain. 25% chance of mild or no improvement and 5% of making it worse."
so far so good. I thank god to be frank.
PM me if you have questions.
