Hi. Looking for some advice. I'm due to have an ACDF next week and would like some feedback on people's experience. I woke up to severe neck and arm pain in early march with numbness and tingling down my left arm and thumb and first 2 fingers. Pain was so bad I couldn't drive or turn my neck. I tried all the normal meds, diazepam, naproxen, ametripline and had physiotherapy to no avail. Finally I saw a fantastic spinal surgeon who ordered an MRI which has shown C5/C6 disc prolapse on left and right trapping my medial nerve. I am now taking gabapentin and my pain has lessened when I'm active but I'm still experiencing the tingling, numbness, stiff neck and weak bicep also having awful nights as as soon as I lie down the pain starts, especially in my elbow and shoulder . Surgeon has recommended ACDF booked for next week and naturally I'm a little nervous. Reading forums of negative experiences hasn't helped!! Any advice would be gratefully received.
