Re: question re: x-ray's after c5-c6 discetomy

Hi cherishedchild, I know exactly how you feel and then some. I had the same fusion three years ago and have been dieing a very slow and painful death ever since. Just getting in to see a specialist up here (Canada) is like brushing the dogs teeth. You have to catch him first. Read my thread "now I'm Frustrated" and you will have an idea where I stand. It seems that waiting is a very big part of the doctors stratagy in that time heals all. NOT! It took eight years to be pain free after my first fusion. Not bad pain but it was still there. So continue with your PT and pray for the best as will I. Good luck and take good care.
