Having surgery on my neck on 14th . Pain really bad,back on ultram and muscle relaxers. Rod up into cervical area has moved and MD says this is probably causing my pain.
He also told me I have quite alot of arthritis in my neck and hips(which nobody has ever voiced to me). If this doesn't help I may have to go to another specialist!!??
I am very down right now .I can hardly do anything ...in fact I'm going to go because this is long enogh for me
Thanks for listening

I feel bad for you and this pain. I sure hope the neck surgery gives you some relief. Hang in there, I'm so sorry this is more to deal with.
Take care of yourself and soon you'll be back on the other side again!

I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. I hope you can hang in there until the 14th and I hope the surgery fixes your pain permanently. I am not surprised you're feeling down. Try to think ahead of the surgery, when this will be behind you (sorry for the pun) and you have a better life to look forward to.

Wishing you the best possible outcome.
