Re: Needing surgery, but not anxious
I live in Nashville too, which doctor are you seeing???
I did a non fusion procedure for my herniations at C5-6 and C6-7; I was having terrible pain in my right arm that started at my shoulder and got progressively worse until it stopped at my elbow. I never felt any pain in my forearm or hand...
Since I did the nonfusion option, I wouldn't be able to help on the recovery time question. But in my case, even with a less invasive procedure I really wasn't ready to do a whole lot for a few weeks...
