Just curious if anyone else has had ADR?
Im almost 3 weeks post op ADR and don't really see a lot of ADR surgeries on these forums. I received the M6 disc, C5/6 level. I herniated my disc 3 years prior and was basically living in pain shooting down my shoulder blade, down my left arm and thumb. I really did not like the thought of a fusion and lucked out by finding a trial for the M6 artificial disc. I was in a soft collar for 2 weeks and basically am only taking Nsaids with occasional pain killer or muscle relaxer at night for nerve pain/soreness. I struggle with nerve pain still, which is to be expected after gaining new disc space in my neck and nerves, muscles, tendons, being stretched and adjusting. My logical brain knows all of this, but the rest of me is impatient and just wants to feel like normal human being.
