Hello, Looking for some good help and support i have a newly discovered disc impingement. I am a realitively healtyhy 53 yr old male. It all started 7 days ago, after a 3 chiropractor sessions, my upper shoulder got numb and neck pain. Today, I just saw an xray of 7th segment and got the possible nerve compression diagnosis. A large spur is in the front, as well.
I had a pulminary embolism 5 weeks ago after arthroscopic hip surgery. Been trying to get used to the cuomadin and recovery from that. I haven't been able to return to work since the hip surgery 8-4-08. I am on the blood thinner coumadin for 12 months.
Please let me know what to do to postpone surgery?
Has anyone been on coumadin and taken off for this surgery?
I live in Santa Barbara and before August I swam and biked.
My numbness is only in my shoulder blades and neck.
Thanks to you all in advance and may we heal well, soon.
