: I had an anterior spinal fusion done on October 5, 1999 even though I am still recuperating from the surgery I already feel 75% better. I have had backpain since 1979 , but the pain was getting increasingly worse, I will know for sure in about a month and after about 10 visits to physical therapy if it was all worth it (I hope so) but so far it looks like it. I would like to hear from others who also had this surgery.

I was recently injured by a, believe it or not, yoga instructor and possibly ending with a chiropractor. it is a brand new injury, a ruptured disc at C6, C7 discovered positively by MRI. I have seen one neurosurgeon and am going again to get a second opinion. spinal fusion was the recommendation of the first neurosurgeon i saw. I am now on steroids, pain meds, and xanax to help me sleep. Any info. would be appreciated greatly. thankyou, Rebecca Dillon
