I'm am considering neck surgery. Bulging and deteriating disks have been impinging my nerves for quite a few years now.

The two stories I've heard so are are:

Surgery is unsuccessful and the pain is worse!

Surgery is a successful, patient has new start on life...scar tissue forms, patient is worse than with no surgery.

My question is; is there physical or drug therapyu that would help stop the developement of scar tissue?


  • There got to be some success stories somwhere right?
  • I think I'm dealing with the scar tissue issue right now. Getting an MRI next week. Surgery was my only hope and I still hope that my pain is not from scars. Sorry my story is not a success! :(
