My name is Courtney and my husband Joseph is the one in pain. He has a hernianted disc at the C5 level. He's been in severe pain for the last year and a half after being injured. He is scheduled for surgery on Dec 24. He's scheduled to have a single level cervical disc replacement. I just spent the last couple of hours reading through some of the information you all have posted. I thought that some of you might have some valuable information to share regarding this particular surgery (particularly pre-op suggestions-things to discuss and verify with the surgeon as well as post-op recovery information). Thank you!!
