Hi Ange,Michael here.havent put my ten bobs worth for a while.to cut avery long story short,afew yrs now,I had an artificial disc replacement done on my neck.had put off for nearly a year but when the specialist told me that the herniated disc was putting a lot of pressure on my spinal cord.I had no option, the surgeon made me very aware that the surgery could stop the situation getting worse but couldn't do anything for the damage already caused.so be prepared to still feel pain and even a chance that the pain could be worse.I got the short straw.I can sorta handle the pain but struggle with the other stuff, burning,spasms.ants crawling on my skin and the unknown and sensations which i can't describe in areas which weren't;t affected before and bit embarrassed to admit depression, don;t know i feel like this, have had some advice from a pain management group and trying to accept that this is the way things are gonna stay is one of the hardest things to accept.

Hi Michael,

I must’ve got lucky I had an ACDF about two years ago and haven’t looked back prior to surgery I suffered tennis & golfers elbow both sides and had been on anti inflams for four years I got pins and needles in my right arm and went to my doctor thinking I was having a heart attack it was similar to you except I was a wrong move from a wheelchair .
I could have been lucky

Johnno

as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse

Hi Michael,

I have a buldging disc in my neck at c5/c6. Surgery has been recommended.
I’m just wondering what u paid out of pocket, if u had private health cover etc etc as my wife and I don’t have private health cover and are trying to weigh up what to do

The specific symptoms are tingling feet, pins and needles in my feet, burning pain in my feet, really severe burning pain all the way down my legs and a general strange sensation in my legs and feet. It can happen to one, then the other or both at the same time. It doesn’t seem to get better or worse spending on how much I do but it does get worse when I lie down. Youjizz Pornhub Tubegalore
