Hi I have a mechanical aortic valve I am on coumadin for life. I need surgery for my neck. I am so afraid of bleeding into spinal cord or clots. I will have to do a bridge but am very nervous. Does anyone have any advice

I was rear ended in car accident. . I have a couple herniated disks. I have done alot of other treatments for over a year. A ortho surgeon said he could probably get 70 percent of pain gone

Personally, I do not like the knife to get rid of a problem, even when serious. Alternative medicine gives you the option of getting rid of 100% of the pain, but it will take time. I do not know where you live, but there are great alternative doctors every where. Whenever you are dealing with the spine & joints you need a special type of doctor to correct the problem. American doctors are chemical pushers and they make everything worse in our body, and you wonder why we are way down on the list of nations with horrible health care. Take a good look at England, they practice 50% alternative medicine. Our AMA is a disgrace. Find a kinesiologist, chiropractor that practices acupuncture, and get yourself on some phytonutrients (whole food supplements) made by Standard Process, that will zero in on your problem, and help yourself heal. God gave us a wonderful body, if you feed it correctly it can heal, but it takes time. Homopathic medicine is being used more and more, and people need to be made aware of the alternatives today. Surgery is big business and more often than not, people suffer for the rest of their lives after having spinal surgery.
