I have a few questions that have been running through my mind and thought I'd put up a post to see what SH members have to say. If I can get these answered, maybe I'll be able to sleep through a whole night.
1. Is it possible to have our spine problems and NOT have DDD? I've never heard anyone say they weren't diagnosed with it but had to have spine surgery. Do we ALL have DDD?
2. I've had cervical surgery and four months later started having lumbar problems that I'm now being treated for. Do most spineys have problems in one area only to later have a problem in another?
3. Someone I know told me that people with spine problems like us don't refer to it as our surgery, we refer to it as our FIRST surgery? Is this right?
