15 years, survivor of cervical disc issues, just completed 30 days post op R&R of C5/C6 April 22. Had C6/C7 R&R'ed back in 2002. "Cervical radiculopathy with myelopathy and upper extremity paralysis" is what the VA wrote on my chart when I retired in 2003. To date they have only awarded 10 % compensation for "Cervical fusion @ c6/c7 healed".
I'm simply trying to find out if I will ever recover fully from the pain and weakness that haunts me 99% of my time here on earth. ~X(
