Hi I am real frustrated! I have had 2 neck surgeries & I have had for the 1st surgery c-4 c-5 fusion & then the second I had Neck C4-C5 & C6-C7 fusion,plate,& Screws. Now my Doc say I need another surgery because the disks have slipped & I have more herniation & on top of that my c-2 & c-3 are now herniated. I am so frustrated because now I see a pain specialist because I have pain 24-7. I don't know if I should have surgery because the first 2 have failed. What if the 3rd does! On top of that I have a bad habit. I smoke and it is really hard to quit. I have to quit smoking for at least a month before he will do it. Should I get the surgery or will it fail too? I am in pain all the time wore then before I had sugery and now the pain specialist has me set up for razotamieze again.
