    Well, as you know I have been battling with drs and tests for a while now. I had the cervical discogram (was the most horrible thing I have ever done in my life..had a really nasty reaction to the anesthesia and called one of the nurses a monkey...LOL) last Thursday (1/4/07)and they found 4 discs that are really bad. 2 of them are compressing the C5 & C6 nerve roots, so those have to go. And, since the 2 above those are bad too, that knocks me out of a chance for replacement. You have to qualify for that and can't have more than 2 bad discs.

    I see the neurosurgeon (AGAIN) on the 19th and will let you know the type of procedure and the date.

    God Bless you all! I hope that each of you have a very blessed, painfree day!

    Lisa:

    I am so sorry you have to go through this. I used to know people (old 'friends') who found it very beneficial.

    And God bless you, too. Yes, let us know of the type of procedure and date.

    Keep your spirits up!
