Re: hi guys.

Tracer, I can understand why you feel the way you do I have been on this roller coaster ride myself for close to 6 yrs and know it is NO fun.
I wouldn't give up I would be looking at other drs and gettting at least another opinion.
At times I feel like just throwing the towel in but then you can come here and get the support of others and it helps.
Hope you can get results and move on with life soon keep us posted to how your doing.
Linda

Re: hi guys.

I Had The Exact Same Surgery As You On Jan. 9 And Know Exactly How You Feel!!! I'm On The Roller Coaster Too With Scar Tissue Replacing The Herniation And Pressing On My Nerve Atl5/s1. I Went On My Own Without Comp. And Got My Own Second Oponion And May Be Able To Pursue Other Avenues Of Treatment. Don't Trust Workers Comp. Nurses And Doctors Totally. There Job Is To Get You Back To Work As Soon As Possible. Please Explores Other Avenues For Your Own Piece Of Mind!!!! Best Of Luck On Your Recovery!!!
