Had this surgery in March 07, 2008.  C4 C5 level, not sure about the disc yet.  Don't think it is working, wishing I had the fused instead.

I had my neo-disc surgery April 17th of '08. You put it perfectly. "I feel like my neck can't support the wieght of my head." I have had MRIs, disco-grams, and E-RAYS. It's very apparent that the neo-disc doesn't support the neck as it should. I just talked to the FDA cordinator, and she said that they are presenting options to the FDA, but isn't sure what they will agree to, as far as, another surgery goes to fix my neck. C-3-7 need lots of help.
It was good to finally get some feedback on this.

Are you in the study?  Who did your Surgery.  I am so glad I have found someone else who has had the same disc.  My neo said, when I come in next month, he can tell me more about the study, since it is closed out and no more new patients.  I found one other person on another site, who is getting a mri, says disc is not working either.  Maybe we can get some help here soon.
