Has anyone else had surgery because they have compressed nerves in the neck. Specifically I have my left and right nerves compressed at level C6/7 and other issues there. My C7/T1 nerve id compressed slightly on the right. I have already had an artificial disc replacement at C5/6 in 2013, but it needed to be replaced straight away as my disc was pushing on 50% of my spinal cord and tearing.
My Dr suggest I have injections in my neck first before surgery and i agree. I have to see my neuro Surgeon dec 2015, which is not that long to go. I have not seen him since my surgery and scared he may say you need surgery. So If any one has had surgery for compressed nerves can you please let me know how long you had the nerves causing pain, what did you do before surgery to try and help it.
