Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
My story on neck discectomy and fusion ...........
I had a discectomy and fusion of C5 thru 7 on June 8, 2009. I was slowly improving until last Wednesday when my pain increased to pre surgery levels, and it's been constant. I can't attribute it to anything I did that day.
I have been getting PT twice a week with ultrasound. the ultrasound seems to work so well I'd like to try and get a home unit, but I hear they are very expensive.
This morning I found this forum and (no offense) got a little depressed. My NSurgeon says don't worry, just a flare up and it's only been 2 + months. I'm on Vicodin and Robaxin but they don't do much since the pain jump. I was very active until this (golf, bike, workout w/weights) and now all I do is treadmill. Am I hoping for too much too early ? I have to go back to work Monday (the 17th) and will do some driving and lifting 30-40 lbs. Am I jumping the gun here ? (Am out of sick leave)
Hope I don't have to sell my new clubs !!
