Hi everyone. I'm So new to all this this pain stuff. I've always been a healthy person up until November when my symptoms started. neck pain and arm pain at first and a month later numbness in fingers .After months of pt and an injection treatment I finally saw a Neurosurgen who told me that my disc were so bad that I needed surgery. They told me they do see this in a person my age, I'm 38. Especially since I don't have any reason for the degenerative disc. No accidents or didn't fall, ect. I'm four days post-op and doing ok. My right arm is still hurting, but I'm hoping this is normal as the nerve has been pinched for a while. Sleeping is a struggle because of the neckbrace, but I make do. I try not to do too much,but kind of difficult when you a 7 and 5 year old to take of. Luckily I do have some help with that.
- what made you comfortable (sitting, lying down)
- did you just rest a lot for a couple weeks (I do get tired after walking around the house for a few hours)
- when did you start feeling a difference
I guess I would just like to hear everyones experience with this surgery.
