I am Mike from Northern New Jersey and this forum helped out alot with some of my decisions prior to surgery.
The pain was persisting but more importantly, my palliative Doctor would not return me to full duty without the surgery.
I work in the Law Enforcement field and was out of work or on light duty for over a year tending to other injuries that occurred at the same time as my cervical injury.
It was time.
I had the surgery on June 22, 2016 and 5 days later alot of the pain has subsided.
I am in a neck brace and have not made and quick movements so I sm still apprehensive to take the collar off. but so far so good.
any questions, feel free to ask.
