Hey everyone! I am recovering from 2 ACDF surgeries and am in need of some advice and some people who can relate. I have browsed this site for several months prior and post surgery for advice and got a lot of info. I'm excited to be apart of this forum and look forward to sharing and ultimately comforting each other during a difficult time. Neck and spine pain, surgeries, etc. are hard to deal with.

So, to introduce myself, my name is Shannon. I am married 38 yrs old. I have a 13 month old daughter and a 13.5 year old son. My injury is apparently mostly hereditary, but I aggravated it enough to herniate a disc at C7 while gardening. Thought I just pulled muscle. Nope. Wasn't that simple. Had first surgery 10/2/14 and then I began experiencing pain on the opposite arm, and they ended up deciding they had left some residual bone, which was found on 10/17 through a CT Scan and on 10/20 I had "Emergency" ACDF surgery and everything was redone.

Anywho, I shared my entire story with questions under another form. Hope to get to know you guys soon,

Thank you!
