Cervical Spondylosis advice please

Thanks in advance :)

I have been suffering from this for 2 years now
I just had my 3rd steroid injection and no help
Tried PT and no help
Pain is at a level 5 out of 10 almost constant
I take 2 or 3 Hyrocodone a day which helps a bit but I hate them

My pain clinic wants me to try a Butran patch and get a nerve block
My neurosurgeon is not pushing me for surgery but may consider a operation from the back of the neck.

I had a bulging disc but it went down but I still can't stand for more than 1 hour or work or ride a bike and would love to be off the meds.

I know a lot of you suffer much worse than this but still would like this to be better
I am scared to death of surgery but don't want to live like this

Many Thanks Larry
