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.
I am a newbie to this site, and I am in the process of educating myself on this surgery. There is a lot of negative posts on this forum, and it is making me wonder about the surgery. I apologize in advance if I dont word things correctly....A neurosurgeon just recommended that I have a C7 posterior foraminotomy for my herniated disc. I can deal with the numbness in my fingertips, but chronic scapular muscle spasms are driving me nuts. I am functioning but I am very frustrated with my upper back problems.
Does surgery usually improve muscular knots (spams) between the shoulder blades when all other alternatives have failed? There are MANY people on this forum that have conditions much worse then mine. I can't decide if I should just comntinue to live with my upper back dysfucntion, or have this surgery to improve my lifestyle/function?
Thanks for your time!
