I'm so freaking nervous. I hope once I get there and talk with the doctor, some of the nerves will subside.
Thanks guys

  • I just got home about 20 mins ago. I'm waiting on food. lol I'm so hungry.

    I got there around 7:30 am and didn't go in to get it done till 5 to 12pm. The nurse said I took longer to wake up for local anesthetic.

    I guess it went good, since they didn't tell the nurses other wise. That's what the lady said.

    I don't feel high from the anesthesia but I do feel weird. I'm going to rest pretty soon , after my food and tylenol 3.

    I'll see if my dad will let me do a second or third one. If all goes well with this one that is. I'm going to call the doctors office for at least a follow up.

    Some older man while I was waiting, wasn't wearing underwear so when he got on the bed I saw his family jewels surprisingly . lol That may or may not have been a highlight.

    Oh and the nurse said I didnt need ice, does that sound right?

  • I had them and they did nothing for me. They did help my mom and I know a lot of others that have had great success with them. I was too far gone, and I do wish you much success!

  • I've had many over the years and in the beginning I got relief for many years so they can work. In my experience I always felt worse before I felt better but only for aboout 3 or 4 days. So don't get discouraged if you feel worse for a couple of days it will get better...Good Luck!!

    aww, well I hope it works. Right now I just feel sore and I don't know how to describe it other than blah and pain. You know when I was still feeling good waking up I was like "I'll do this again" then when it wore off I was like "Hmm Maybe not" lol
    I do hope it gets better , thanks!
  • I had it C5-7 and the bandage is low on my neck does that mean he did it around c7 or what?
