I was told by the Dr. I went to see for my 2nd opinion that I am a candidate for surgery. I have seen a neurosurgeon that prescribed therapy, and meds. Then I saw a pain mgmt specialist and had 3 epidural shots. Now it has been about 3 weeks since the last shot. My neck is very uncomfortable, but is it so uncomfortable that I want to have this surgery?, If anyone has had this surgery please respond as I have no idea if I am doing the right thing. When he did his exam he tapped on my right arm and there was no response. I don't think I squeezed, pushed or pulled my arms during the test as hard as I could have, I would like to do that over. I wonder how much that test plays into the idea of surgery. My mri was plain as day showing the indentation into the spinal cord. ARGH!!!!
