    what are you having done specifically, i had a spinal probe done through the front of my neck, not pleasant, but like i say it depends on what you are having done specifically. if it is something different your experience will be different, and the anaeshetic will be different.

    i was up and about the next day, but i dont think it will compare to what you are having done. i was offered the same op as you but it was pulled at the last minute, i was told that it would make things worse. i was told this by a specialist from st james' in leeds he came down to manchester to assess me. good luck and i hope you feel better than i have got to be.
