So I'm going to see my surgeon tomorrow morning at a moments notice because one came up.
Last time I saw him he said I need surgery on my disc in my neck. He sent me the procedure in an email so wasn't full of confidence. I done research and decided against it, he didn't like this and told me not to go back to him until I couldn't use my hands.
I am very very nervous for numerous reasons but I know I need to go as I have recently been told after a new MRI that my neck isn't as bad as first thought, this was said by the pain clinic.
Now I'm confused, someone is at fault and it's not me. 2 MRIs, one 2 yrs ago and 1 last month. First MRI showed there was narrowing and a complete break down of my disc (c6) and disc C5 is on its way out. Now I am told they are just bulging and that the problem is I have what they call a "straight neck".
Any opinions and advice would be greatful before the morning as I don't exactly know what to say. Also the middle of my back is starting hurt. May I add though that a nerve test was done and apparently negative of any compression.
