with my cervical spine it went from pain in the neck and electrical shooting pains to arm weakness in a matter of a few months so that was surgery time. I also went to pt first.
Now for my lumbar area , i just got my f in pt. Sent home, no progress made in 7 weeks. Now i am having a ct on my lumbar tomorrow and see what is next. Probably anterior surgery. I am not happy about the prospect, but i can hardly stand up in anywhere near a straight position in the last 2 weeks. I just fall forward. Allready look 90 years old. What will happen if i live to be old if i do not do the surgery is a question in my mind. Wheelchair for sure.
