thanks for the info. i have the spondylosis. neck fusion surgery 4yrs ago has halted the progression of nerve damage, but i still have permanent nerve damage from the neck down... and still a lot of pain from neuropathy everywhere. i was fast becoming a quadriplegic when i finally had the surgery done. lesson: don't put off surgery your Dr tells you needs to be done.
that's horrible. I had it last year, now I'm just in my 30s. Wish I don't need the surgery eventually.
