  • I'm sorry to hear that your nerve pain has returned. Hopefully it's just temporary and goes away again soon.
    If it last more than a few days, call your doctor. It could just be part of the process. Keep us posted.

  • Mine was a total failure. In far worse pain, wish I never did it. I will never encourage anyone to have this awful surgery. I was doing great for a year and now I am crippled. I asked to have the hardware removed and just get what I had back but that is impossible, now I have to live like this for life. Spine surgery is a death sentence. The reason there are not "success stories" here is not because people are skipping through the daisies and don't report back, but because there are so few success stories, it is insignificant in the onslaught of failures.
