If you've read hundreds of these stories (like i have) then you know most start out the same. So I will put in my facts first.
*I'm 39 yrs old 5'8" 185lbs
*had boobs since 4th grade
*had size 28D's by 10th grade
*gained weight with my 2 pregnancies
*nursed two babies
*have been size 34G since having kids
*chronic upper back and neck pain for 19 yrs.
*had ACDF to fix rupture disc in my neck last yr.
*seen chiropractors, physical therapist, massage therapist, weight loss clinics, family Dr, and spine surgeon. Guess what, nothing is wrong with my spine! What? Then why am I in constant pain?
I come from a family of very chesty women. When my aunt had a BR 2 yrs ago I started thinking this might be my back and neck problem. I started with weight loss first. I weighed 205lbs in jan 2012. After I recovered from my neck surgery I started walking and eating better. I lost 20 lbs but not even a centimeter from the "girls".
I'm a hairstylist which is hard on the body anyway. I love love love my job. I start my day with 4 Advil, then a few hrs later I need my tramadol, by the middle of the day I want to quit my job, win the lottery, file for disability, (which I'd never get) because nothing is wrong with my back, so I take more meds just to finish my work day. Then a muscle relaxer so my muscle will stop pulsing so i can sleep. I still love my job and my clients but I can't live with this most ridiculous, stabbing, aching, throbbing, burning pain anymore. Did I mention I hate pills.
My concern is will this really help with the back and neck pain? Is there any hairstylist that has had this surgery? I'm defiantly getting the surgery I just want some feedback on how much does this help. I've read many of the blogs. I know women says this helps I'm just tired of being in pain All the time:)
I will post pics as I get them.

I'm at 3 days post op. and I get to shower today. Yay! I was taking norco every 4 hrs. Now I take Norco every 8 hrs and Tylenol in between if needed. So far this is my best day. I've read hundreds of stories on here and learned that day 3 the pain gets better with most ladies. Thank you all for sharing. I will post pic after my shower.
