I have to see the neurosurgeon on Friday, Have to decide between surgery or shots. I all ready had some shots and had a severe reaction to them, so I think I'm going to have the surgery. I have bulging and herniated disk in my neck. I just want some relief from the pain!!! I know the recovery takes some time and the hospital stay is atleast a couple of days.
