  • Des,
    You must be frustrated. Glad your nerve block helped so far, but sorry the NS dismissed your neck issues for now. It certainly is a long process, no matter what the case.

    Hang in there...hope you continue to have relief of your symptoms in your low back.

    Keep us posted.

  • Hi Jan,

    Just wondering how you are doing now since you have been having more physio ?

    has your neck improved with the movement and pain since you had your op I do hope so ?

    I am a little disappointed I have no date for my neck to be done I am fed up with this waiting as I wanted both surgeries done so I could get on and recover in one go.

    All the best Des

  • Hi Des...
    Thanks for checking on me. I was just thinking this morning about how much progress I have made in 5 visits! I am getting more range and even added 1 lb weights to my arm lifts -yeah, I know...1 lb isn't very much, but it feels like it is!! :)

    Still no numbness/tingling, and I am off pain meds completely as of last Friday. Just 6 weeks post-op yesterday.

    I am very grateful for my successful surgery and the good results.

    I wish you the best as you go through the process. Feel to message me with any questions.

    Thanks again for asking!
