Is there anyone who has had this surgery or knows of someone close to them who has had the procedure?
It is a relatively new (metal joint) procedure and so they only have history going back 10 years but I'd be interested to talk to someone who has had it about their recovery and whether it had impacted on the spine badly causing further disc prolapses?
Also whether it has helped with neck pain as well as nerve (arm) pain as they're stating it might not help the neck pain, which is my main area of concern. Although the nerve pain isn't fun...
Be interested to hear anyone's stories please x
