Hi, I have had an anterior discectomy with decompression and fusion in 2003 on c5 - c6 (for those who know the surgeon enters through the front of the throat to access your spine (neck). Also, in 2009 I had another C6-c7 this time decompression surgery and disc replacement. I have had neck pain for 12 years and would like to chat to someone in a similar position.
It has affected my home life (married with a child) working life, sex life etc, and I am having further scans lower down the spine in the next few months.
I have come to terms to a certain extent with the situation and try to remain positive - an uphill battle some days!.
