Herniated Disks in Neck/Back

I have herniated disks in my neck and have had since 1/2010. After Dr., After Dr., After Dr. I'm finally getting to see the Spine Specialist Surgeon on Tuesday the 2nd. I'm nervous but can't wait. Maybe I can start to get my life back in order if he can do something for me.

I have massive, massive headaches that could be from my herniated disk or my brain trauma from my car accident in June. I think a bunch of different things are going on but I also think they all end up combining themselves also.

I'm worried that he may say surgery and if it works great, I'm excited, but how long will I be out of work? I've been with the same job for 18 years I don't think they can let me go because I have a health issue. After all I have over 100 days I can use to take time off.

I had 2 disks removed from my lower back awhile ago and everything was great. But I now have another bad disk bulging in my lower back. Is that related to the neck problem or just a fluke. I'll have the Dr. Tuesday look at this area also.

Well enough is enough.
