I have been reading alot of the questions/comments. Figured I would add mine.
I have another appt w/ the dr tommorrow. I have a herniated C3,C4 & C5. The dr seemed to suggest when I seen him about 4 weeks ago that he felt I needed the neck fusion surgery. All I could do that day (and several days before) was cry like a baby. I was scared to dead and still am. I had one neck injection that has helped somewhat. I'm not in a LOT of pain but mostly discomfort. The pain gets worse when I do things like not getting enough sleep one night, hanging/running behind the grandkids and working long hrs (54-63 hrs per week) on the job which I do accts payable/receivable, payroll, etc mostly sitting at a desk.
My questions is: What questions did you NOT ask your doctor but wished you would have? Does that sound crazy?? I feel like I'm going crazy with this sometimes
Mostly alot of worry that probably is not neccessary but we worry and are afraid of the unknown. When I seen the dr 4 weeks ago, I was not able to ask any questions. This may sound crazy again but I'm making a list.
Please help with any suggestion, questions or comments you may have.
