hi i am new to this site. i just had surgery done as i had a herniated disk(c6-7). this is going on my 3rd week and the initial pain is gone but my fears are my limitations now which were never discussed with me. who else has had this done. i had a plug placed in, so i guess graphing but not from me. i have an appt tomorrow but i would like some feedback from anyone. i have now been hearing all kinds of reports that i won't be able to job or do any vigourous exercising, no lifting weights, vant go to the hair salon as i won't be able to bend my neck back and the list goes on. now i realize that perhaps i wont be able to do these things in the beginning but the report i received from an individual today was that i will NEVER be able to do these things. my life has totally been changed and i have many limitations. my whole surgery was not greatly discusses and when i asked about any limitations, none were given. please help me.
