well i have been asked by a couple of mates on here what the op is im having.
the op is this,
at some point this month (i hope) i will be undergoing a 6 hour operation to either replace or fuse damaged disc's in my neck.
they will make the choice when they inspect the damage on opening me up so if.
they find its really bad damage and the bone is in poor condition they will fuse, the following disc's together,
c4 to c5 to c6 to c7 to c8 so thats 5 disc's fused together, this will leave me totally unable to shoot from a prone position and i will have a recovery time of 8 weeks.
if the bone is in good condition they will replace c5 c6 and c7 disc's with titainium parts, this will give me back about 90% movment in my neck and allow me to return to the prone position after the 8 weeks, but with low recoil rifles only.
but if they go in there and cock it up. i could be paralysed from the neck down.
here's hoping it goes well and we have option 2.
heres a link to a op being done on just 1 disc. graphic images.
