Default Getting a disk replaced in my neck!

Well on the 12th of June I get to finally have surgery on my neck to get a disk replaced at c5 and c6. I should then finally get the feeling back in my hands and arms and get rid of my neck pain. So I won't be around for 6 to 8 weeks starting June 10.
I'll be learning to walk, talk and eat again after that.

My mom's had a handful of surgeries. A few on the neck and a hip.

For weeks at a time I get terrible sciatic nerve pain. Mostly the lower back through the left side of my pelvis all the down past the back of my knee. Sometimes on the right side as well.

A sneeze can sometimes put a hurting on me that most people wouldn't understand.


After so many miles, parts just need replacing.
to a speedy recovery.

Father had this done at age 58. Best thing he ever did. I hope it works out for you as well!

I hope it works out well for me too! Thanks for the well wishes. If I would have known I was going to live this long I would have done less stupid things and taken better care of my body! But would of had much less fun.
