Has anyone had neck surgery?

I am told that I need it to stop the pain in my shoulder, I have a compressed disc and bone spur. All I know is since I am a smoker. they have to take a piece of my hip bone to fix it.

  • if you are going to have surgery, i'd check intp a different option other than taking bone from your body. it is EXTREMELY painful. i had low back surgery, didn't help. i probably have to have another-don't know if that will help either. i tried everything possible prior to having surgery. it was a last resort. did you try therapy, massage, injections, accupuncture, medications-although meds aren't always the best answer?
