Thank you for your message. I do have osteophytes. I am in shock at how long our wait times are here in Canada. It's very upsetting and I am very angry.

Thank you for your reply. I am going to meet with the 2nd neurosurgeon on Tuesday. I might need both procedures done. The disk has problems.

Just a quick note to say hi!  thanks Richard - I don't have any arm problems but a lot of other nasties! - shoulders/neck mainly - I have been wondering if this was caused by the 'stuff'  going wrong in cervical spine - but I have a suspition it is something else.

Thanks for the response.  Most of the sites I have seen are medical studies conducted by reputable universities.  My neurologist can't answer the question "how do you measure success for this surgery."  It seems it is measured very differently from one doc to another.  

I am extremely cautious about any surgery.  I believe there are far more surgeries done then are needed.  However, in the end, I'll elect to go ahead IF I am comfortable with the risks, have tried every other possible treatment, and am confident in my doctor (which means I'll need to find another one).  

First step- trying the injections.....and then we'll see!  

Thanks!

Thanks for the encouragement.  I am just scared of the whole thing.  Anesthesia also scares me.  I will get over it, but you know how it is.....

Thanks for your positive comments they have really helped. For now I am holding off on surgery and giving myself more time. Neuro surgeon however,said the longer I wait the less chance of success with the op. My problem only began in March when I had an accident so its only been 4 months to date. He implied that if I left surgery until next year I would be cutting my chances of  a good result.Pain consultant said 'dont let him pressure you', so am now pretty confused!!
