... disks. Pre surgical testing revealed elevated liver problems,a decrease in potassium levels and a marked change in cholesterol levels (elevated). The doc took her off it and said it would be as much as two weeks before it is normal again IF it is due to the Zanaflex elevating the liver enzymes. Problem is, it is one week before surgery and it is now postponed. Has anyone else experienced elevated liver enzymes because of Zanaflex?
I am glad your surgery has been postponed, it give you both time to think. Your Potassium being low that alone will give cause to have it rescheduled.
I have horriable discs in my neck. Mine I am sure is all the years in martial arts.When I asked another doctor for his opinion, he reviewed my tests and bit his bottom lip and then I knew I was in trouble. He said it is a mess. But never have surgery unless it is an emergency. My doctors put me on Neurontin and that has helped me allot. Once you have surgery there is no turning back One slip it is all over you will be in a wheelchair for life. It is not worth it.
Please check out Google Scholar and see the new techniques out there and proceed.
Take care and I will be thinking about you
